We took a little boat out for the day and parked at Calajunco for lunch ( Panini's bought from the port ) and cold beers . A swim is always a must , just make sure you watch out for the medusa's .

Calla junco has police monitors who ticket boats in the area. Beware otherwise you will be fined when I was there seven years ago this was not a problem.
