1. Re: what to do and not to do?

We are staying at the Barcelo from Feb. 16 for two weeks - this will be our third visit, and hooking up with two couples we've met through the forum.

Venture out to the two towns nearby - Santa Cruz and La Crucesita are both full of wonderful shops and great restaurants and only 25 pesos by taxi.

La Bocana is only 10-15 minutes away (40 pesos) which offers a pristine beach, great waves and a couple of restaurants. Mud baths are offered by the locals, river rafting comes out here or horseback riding has a stop here, with lots of birds to see.

Set up a boat ride with one of the locals on the beach in front of the hotels (there are many and all are very reliable and safe to deal with), and go on a bay tour where you may see whales, dolphins or manta rays. They will take you to a bay for snorkelling or whatever. If you are a serious diver, then hook up with Hurricane Divers (www.hurricanedivers.com) for a day tour - they are supposed to be awesome for their services.

Or venture out in a taxi tour to visit Puerto Angel, Zipotle, Ventanilla or Puerto Escondido to see some of the local towns or beaches which are unbelievably pristine and beautiful.

There's lots to see and do, depending on what you are interested in. This forum is a great source to do your research and find websites with info. Hope you enjoy the area as much as we have. What dates will you be there - perhaps they coincide with ours?
