  • Amazing Beach and sea! Everything one would expect from the Caribbean is in Palancar. Reef half a mile of the coast full of fishes of different colors and sizes. The water turquoise and warm, the beach of white sand and very good attention from the locals. Very rich food. Clean toilets. The taxi transfer from the port round the 26 dollars only the ida or the back. Instead, if one consumes in the restaurant you can use resposeras, umbrellas and toilets.

  • Being in Caribbean expect more sea. it's bad but the beach is small and it's nothing that would give it the maximum rating just because it's not very commercial. We arrive after a ride and is very relaxing entrance is free there is a large parking place on the beach and do not make you pay the umbrellas and chairs if consumption mah aimè overpriced compared to the average seems to be in porto cervo, staff mah brash as all mexicano they remind you that the tip is not included I paid 2 Crown and a French FRY 375 pesos almost 20 euros too for these parts whatever that we are far from the world though ... Carini various animals present in the establishment
