A rock formation can be sighted just off shore standing tall in the water. Head to the local eateries and grab a bite or refreshing drink while you enjoy the waterfront views or take some surfing lessons.

You have different options of hotels, restaurants and bars, on the banks of the vehicular Street, peatotal as well as facing the sea, at prices mid-range/tweeter. There are various options of food, dominated by seafood for obvious reasons, but you can get pupusas, tacos, meats and other options.
