  • Beautiful place, from there we saw whales with calves walking distance from the beach... incredible, a unique natural spectacle...

  • To not miss it! Divine and nearby pyramids, a getaway to go by car with family. Not suitable for strollers. If you're going with young guys you must be careful when they come near to the sea
