    The beach front ground moons rio y mares is beautiful. It is not very long... you can make the round-trip in 20 minutes or less. L,' water is turquoise. The sea is not quiet at all but you always wind which is effective in August in the heat that is.

    Hours of pleasure a swim with a mask and look at different types of fish and we certainly will return!

    Is a precious gem, one of the most beautiful beaches in Guardalavaca. Fine sand is white, Palm trees and the water is turquoise, breezy. To reach it you have to go in the middle of the resort, and it can get crowded, we walked a bit to be able to find some peace. Near the beach you can visit the Dolphinarium and the lagoon, both are worth a visit.
