It was nice,but less what I have expected.We got some water with sand to take home as a memory. It is still a nice beach to visit. We took a cab there . Our beach at Sol Cayo Coco was a little bit less better.

Indeed at once this was one of world’s best beaches but its beauty is now significantly damaged by rubbish human developments, it is also only 400 m long.
