  • This was the first Pacific Beach that I attended. I enjoyed the experience. Totally different from the Brazilian beaches, El Laucho Beach has a sand from the rocks and desert that gets damp not never. The result is an extremely hot sand burning your feet. Walk on the beach is like stepping on fire. The water is very good, very refreshing. But you must be careful, as there are many stones. There was also a lot of algae. On the beach there are umbrellas and chairs for rent. Next have showers. Also has a bar/restaurant with typical food of the region. Despite having good dishes, the service is very clumsy and slow.

  • The beach in if you don't have any shine, what makes it entertaining is water, which is very warm and rich for bathing, that if in summer you have to go after the 7 so do not burn with the Sun and you can swim until late the most curious of the beach is the amount of things that sell I told how 20 different things since potato stuffed Colombian, until corn with butter, so if you go to the beach you will not go hungry
