Something not right?

Description

A gorgeous protected cove meaning safe swimming, a gorgeous reef and fantastic snorkeling.

Along the beach are strung many restaurants - mostly small rustic places with a few concrete structures. Definitely not over developed but you eat in a different place for a month.

A couple of small shops but not much here so definitely stock up on way in - mostly small evening meals after a big seafood lunch ;) Listen out for the pan-man with his little ditty on sporadic nights (around 9pm!). Occasionally a fruit or meat man comes around in late morning too.

You can hike over a short but v steep rocky 'path' (follow exposed rock section just set back at south end of beach) to a dilapidated palapa on the next beach in the marine park. Find the little unmarked scrubby trail behind the palapa to go a little further into the next bay for sheltered snorkeling.

It's a 12km dirt road in but sections are paved and it's not too bad. Aim for the southern end of town to camp.

Don't miss this place - one of our favourite spots on the mainland but still well off the beaten track.

The coral reef here is wonderful! We saw also a lot of colored fishs. Really easy to access even if there are some currents. I was not aware that there has so beautiful coral reef on this coast! Much more beautiful que the coral reef that we saw in Yucatan peninsula. We parked our car on the soccer field for free.

It’s a beautiful beach, but don’t miss Playa Riscalillo. There’s where it’s worth it.
Stopped at the Overlanders spot to see the place, and their place is certainly nice. Small, but nice location and facilities. They said their price is 250 for 2 people in a van, but since I was alone, I’d get a discount and only pay 200. Nice Folks…
I ended up wild camping at the other side, where the sun sets, and I had the beach to myself…

Huge disappointment! Can’t get to the beach without going through a restaurant. Greatly overpriced restaurants at that. Even the main places to pay to camp are overpriced. (There are a few free places still left). Couldn’t relax here at all....

We’ve found much better elsewhere via iOverlander....this is not worth the 13km of washboard to get here.

Beach access only through palapa restaurants and camps.

The best place for camping with tent ore rig is “Overlander Beach Camp “Don Taco”. Clean and safe with plenty restaurants as direct neighbours. Pet frendly and direct on the beach.
