Description

Many parking spots on beach side. Owner of "Reggae Chill" said it would be safe (there are two guards on either side of the restaurant). Police cars driving by frequently. We stayed two nights without any hassle. FREE.

Nice surf but pretty short breaks for beginners. Life guards until sunset. Lots of trees for shade or hammocks. Little fruit stand right next to us.

Maybe Wi-Fi from restaurant.

Still available to camp, we stayed two nights, safe, lots of trees so lot of shadow spots to be fresh. Nice water, clean and good for surfing. Lot of ppl until night. Calm place, maybe a bit noisy because it's next to main street. Slow WiFi from restaurant, they will share you the password.

Aún disponible para acampar, nos quedamos dos noches, seguro, muchos árboles por lo que hay muchos espacios con sombra para estar frescos sin sol. El agua es clara y limpia buena para hacer surf. Muchas personas hasta el anochecer. Un lugar tranquilo, tal vez un poco ruidoso porque está a la par de la carretera principal. Internet lento del restaurante, ellos le compartirán la contraseña.

Spent one night here off the road under the trees a little closer to town than where this point is. Not great as you are right on the road. We later moved on to Punta Uva which was way better for us.

We spent a night here, it was fine but I preferred the spot next to the police station just because I could wake up and look straight at salsa brava without getting out of bed! But this spot was more quiet and a little nicer.

Ótimo lugar para estar vários dias, dormimos bem tranquilos, praia linda e pessoas simpáticas.

Report Check-In

OK place but it's right on the road and not very secluded. It's also kindof no man's land for restaurants and bars. We checked many of the spots in ioverlander and stayed here one night. We had to wait until a bit late to park since most spots were full during the day (Sunday). Lots of sloths in the trees up and down this road. We went to jaguar rescue center in the morning which was very nice but also quite busy.

FREE!! We parked overnight at the beach where the Reggae Chill bar and Lifeguard tower is. The bar has a security at night and the police is driving by too. We felt really safe and also met other overlanders here. Great place to stay overnight and surf during the day. FREE!!
