An amazing beach to spend a day or a month! Warm ocean, great surf, happy people, laid back vibe...it's the best. Super close to the fun city of Leon, too.

Thank Paulina S

Nice beach to day trip although the currents were strong. I wouldn't spend the night.

The beach is nice, especially for surfing and we saw pelicans fishing. Take a canoe trip with a local guide up the mangrove swamps at Isla Juan Venado and see kingfishers, caiman, Ibis, storks, eagles, iguanas and crabs etc, then have lunch on the beach in the afternoon and relax in a hammock.
