This really is an amazing place to visit. With no telephone or internet reception and just the few cabanas and simple restaurants scattered along the beach, this really makes for the perfect get away. We were here for 3 nights and had the most relaxing and peaceful escape. The local people here are extremely friendly, it's cheap, and has great... More

It's nice but really far off the beaten path. If you have a couple days to spend out there it would be worth going. Beautiful beach and hardly any tourists around. Be careful. Check out the crocodile zoo...free but give a generous tip!

We went there and the combination of the lagune, the river and the sea is amazing. you can really chill there and there wont be many people. the trip to go there is already amazing. we stayed the first nights in the "center" and once during the day we walked along the beach like 2 hours (slowly) till we came...

To far, surf is not extraordinary, only dirty accomdations, too many moskitos (denguee problems), unsafe. I would not recomend it.

You have to camp next to the beach, Facilities and ambiance is really rustic if you do not have trouble with that you[ll be fine. People is honest, kind and compromised with your stay. Tichinda tamales are the best (river clamshell) only 5 pesos, unbelievable. Lot of youth. Probably we were the oldest. Night is for young people, but during... More

Myself and a few guys from P.E. went for a day and nite there to see something different and we have heard about the beauty of the area. If your leaving for the day leave early because it takes a couple of different steps to get there if your going by public transportation and not driving on your own. Had... More
