  • A place where the party is always present, even more in end of week. Always recommended. Many places to eat, relax and enjoy. If you go to Montañita let prejudices in the House! And enjoy it all

  • The second time we get back. Wonderful place. Definitely more for young and free, but I looked at families with children. People coming from all over the world. Only drawback are stray dogs "who do what they want" definitely worth visiting!

  • Auqnue not is a beach paradise with a sea of very blue or white sand, this beach has its charm in the people, in the so diverse environment that is, in the afternoon the Sun is spectacular, and in the evening the beach has too much noise.
