Take a panga or group boat to Quimixto and enjoy several hours there. We always hike to the waterfall and spend a couple hours there, but you can also take a horse ride to the waterfall if you do't like hiking uphill.

Yesterday while on the beach we scheduled a private panga rental seven of us in the group came out $40 an hour. We can go anywhere we want even bring our own food and drinks. A great deal imo.
