  • Taganaga beach. Very dirty because it is full of boats. Also not cleaned it. It is not worth to go. Dispensable

  • He had previously visited playaca and I thought it was a good place, but yesterday I visited this site and I felt physically sick, initially the road was horrific and in very bad state, more than catretera is a trail, then to get to the beach we found that the mesh have enclosing the Sea you are storing a lot of garbage, there was trash floating in the water papers and even condoms everywhere! Asco, and the bottom of the water on the floor is also full of garbage, that disgusting, slimy felt very dirty, should be shut down or close the beach to the entry of people for health reasons, in addition we leave the water looking urgently for a shower and there is no shower! do not water for toilets. The owners of the place have zero interest in hygiene and welfare of visitors.
