Location!

Great staff, average food, strong drinks. But the location makes it. A gorgeous beach, and the porch is right on the water. So lovely.

It is a long beach where you can find what you prefer: silence, people, motoscooter, kayak, trip to isla espiritu santu, restaurant, small but good bar. You can swim without problem and sometimes, if you are lucky, you can see whales from the beach. The sunset hour is something amazing. During the weekend becomes very crowded.

The drive to get here is fun and you feel like you are driving to the end of the world and then appears this beautiful beach. It's very long which helps it feel not as crowded. We were there on a Saturday. We had lunch at a restaurant there (Palapa Azul) and then had use of their lounge chairs. This... More

Beautiful beach. Great food and drinks. No one else was here! had the whole place to ourselves. Try the chocolate clams "natural". worth the drive from La Paz. Find a taxi driver to take you there for the day. You can negotiate prices with most cab drivers and he will stay and wait for you. Be sure to hit Balandra... More

Love the beach restaurant here but would never bother with the beach. Often super windy. Waves can be rough, beach is not smooth, view is magnificent but the facilities are rustic at best Food is a good value, service is good, banos are a bit gross

Best beach of the trip. We liked Tecolote the best because it was a nice blend - good services, activities/rental gear, friendly people. Clear water, decent depth, great views. My daughter had an awesome massage from a Portuguese woman there who was a pro.

First of all, this beach is very beautiful and clean. On the other hand, if you think you are going to see lots of fish, you are wrong. This beach is like a giant, natural swimming pool and will not disappoint for a swim. For snorkeling you will need to take a tour to one of the islands, like Espiritu... More
