I think this is the iguanas favorite beach. They are all over the place. Scenic views and if you pay the entry fee, you can go to the tip and walk down the paths to the sea. You can spend 15 minutes to take in the views or an hour or two (to walk the park and have a drink... More

I enjoyed the walk out to the point and all of the statues along the way. There were also little shops and a great place to eat.

Gorgeous lookout over the Caribbean. Starkly rocky cliffs down to the crashing waves make for fantastic photos. Restroom is 5 pesos! Haven't tried the restaurant here, but it looks great.
