    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    Could you possibly point me to the company from which you buy your pretty guest sarongs/beach towels? I would like to have some just like the ones at your resort. They are much more energy efficient to wash and dry. Plus, they would be a great reminder of our awesome family vacation there a couple of years ago. If it would be easier, maybe I could purchase new sarongs from La Paloma. Looking forward to your response.

    Did not see surfers at any of the beaches we visited, but that doesn't mean there isn't surfing spot in the area. I suspect there is. Definitely email La Paloma directly.
