(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Celebrated for its natural beauty, Oro Bay features transparent blue water surrounded by a dense pine forest. Bring your own or rent snorkeling gear and see the brightly colored tropical fish up close. When you get tired, rest on the beach or explore the stalls selling handmade baskets and fresh fruit. The trip to this beach involves a short hike and bit of wading through water. Thanks to its off-the-beaten-path character, this bay remains one of the area's secret gems, offering privacy in a lush natural setting.

  • We booked from our cottage for this beautiful traditional canoes to sail out. A moment of happiness because landscapes are really outstanding. That was great. After finishing the crossing. It dropped us to a trail that takes us a natural pool, before be picked up by our shuttle. Too good!

  • In the silence of the canoe, pushed by the wind, the place is given to contemplation, to the pleasure of navigation and a heavenly place.
