  • Walking we found this little corner of paradise called Ballenas beach. La Luz del sol with the colour of the water is something fascinating! And palm trees are so beautiful how much useful if want you to take a NAP! In the end. With the moto concho pass through exits for 50 pesos and worth a go. The cost of a mojito at the hotel colibri sale for 200 pesos (approx € 4 according to the change). If you pass by the earth not can not go to this beach.

  • We were at Casa Papaya and encouraged by Mr. Moises (Agency Jaseli) we enjoyed long walks on the beaches interspersed stops ds qq superb restaurants (fishing village) not to mention the happy hour... but I can't remember where... We play pétanque! the very crowded village is, however, very funny and very friendly locals!

  • Even with the raging sea is possible to bathe in its clear waters and tranquil. Ideal to relax and enjoy a blue sea of warm waters.
