This is a small bay with a small opening so water is very calm most times. Three small beaches only, one you must boat over to only. A quaint fishing village and for about 400 pesos you can rent a Hobie Cat sail boat with...More

This bay is a fiesta every evening. It does not matter what kind of day it is, every evening is a fiesta of colour as the sun sets into the ocean! Grab a seat and enjoy!

This is a truly scenic area, whether it's the blue waters during the day, the sunset behind the mountains, or the lights around the bay at night. Several beaches each have a different character, and the bay is well protected from the open ocean making...More

We stayed at the Bahai Suites on La Madera beach and enjoyed our 11 day stay very much. The beach was accessed down the 77 steps from our accommodations, kept us in shape going back up! We loved the beach and sat at the many...More

The view of the bay is nice with the fishing boats and wharf, but there aren't a lot of places to sit and enjoy the view unless you want to have a drink in one of the beach cafes. The few benches/seats available are often...More

A typical Mexican fishing village close to the harbour but truly a tourist destination during the winter. Accommodations are priced to meet budgets so research is needed when preparing your holiday stay. Early Feb is the Sailfest with lots of sailboats in the bay contributing...More

Hi Thomas, the town is great - mostly untouristy and the people are lovely. It is a local hub, so, while not a big town, it has a good authentic feel. Most of the beaches and restaurants are filled by locals, with tourists... More

I can't say for sure, but it should be fairly moderate. It should be great for swimming and taking siestas.
