  • Deserted Beach, or piped water has. Here the good news is you don't have unipresentes sellers in the country, but you have to pay to enter the Park.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches we visited on vacation by the Caribbean. Accessible by boat through Taganga, on 30 minutes to get there. The beach is beautiful! There is a special place to see colorful fish. The water is crystal clear and great for swimming and relaxing. It's worth it!
