A 3-5 minute walk, or a 1/4 Mile from our accommodation there is the most beautiful beach that streches for about 10 miles.
It is perfect for swimming, body surfing, board surfing and fishing.
Beach combing for Sea shells is an extra ordinary experience specially in the morning, see local fisherman coming back with their daily catch.
Watch hundreds of blue Crabs feed in the lagoon, or stroll barefoot along the shoreline and watch hundreds of pelicans, frigate birds and boobies dive for fish! What a sight!


The sunset is a thing of beauty. You will enjoy the temperature of the water which is an unbelievable 26-28 C/84-88 F. Because of our close proximity to the southern hemisphere and our pitch black nights stargazing is something special here. Bring some powerful binoculars.

You can rent kayaks and go out on the impressive lagoon or into the ocean surf. If you enjoy adventures, take a motor-boat trip through the lagoon and see fresh water fish, crocodiles, birds and animals, as well as mangroves and many other exotic plants.

We also recommend visiting "LA CHOLE" - Soledad de Maciel, one of Mexico's most exiting archeological sites - it's a must.

We have the Guamilule hill which may be climbed by anyone who has the stamina to attempt it. On the top of the hill you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the entire bay and you may see the complete extension of the lagoon.


The beach is a fisherman's paradise! Bring your rod and reel for an unbelievable fishing experience right off the beach or from a fishing boat. If you are lucky you can catch a Barrilete, a 20-30 pound Curel-Jack or a Mahi mahi. Your fishing line should be 15-20 pound test, equipped with a 30-40 pound leader, and your spinning reel should hold at least 175-250 yd's. of fishing line. Live bait, sardines or anchovies are preferred, but good silvery plastic wiggly lures work as well.

We can assist you to arrange Boat fishing trips, snorkeling tours or a boat ride through the lagoon (bird watching) with guide.

On the beach and on the lagoon shore there are several enramadas or beach restaurants that offer a variety of delicious sea food and local fare.
In the village there are several typical Mexican eateries; also known as; "typical backyard BBQ eateries".
