  • We stayed at the resort Sol Rio de Luna y Mares and minutes from the beach. It was well maintained and a delight to swim in the ocean...so clean and fresh. Loved it ! 
  • A very nice and cosy beach. We visited it after Guardalavaca and it seemed to me to be less beautiful.

  • A beach very pretty, but personally I prefer Guardalavaca. Perhaps also because at the time that we were there is too much overcrowding.
