  • We left Castillo Grande, where we left a taxi driver, we took a small boat to 30000COP per person, having agreed that we would have the right to return and transport a "tent" with two chairs to stay all day. We were greeted by a "lugareño" (people of the place) sympathetically. But to learn that comeriamos not in place (no what a vegetarian eat away the patacones) got mad and started to press us rudely. That was really bother, we moved to THE BEACH Hostel. After getting a tent awesome the 20000COP per person, the atemdente informed us that they have a tour to Punta Arena includes transfers, tent, bathrooms, pool, shower and 25000COP in consummation, total 65000COP. nice apart from the Beach, good to go with children, some boats and jets on the edge. Green water, but not transparent, and good temperature.

  • The beach is very dirty, full of stones and the worst glasses. When we went there was a boat parked on the beach making much noise and when petrol into the water. In it environmental for crying, you offer chunks of coral cut of the Park natural. When I stung an aguamala (jellyfish) said no more. Support an hour.

  • I do not recommend to go. The dirty Beach, looks like a dustbin, dirty water, you can not rest. Very little serious tourism company, an embarrassment. Not recommend this company.
