Get down there for 5 o'clock every day and help rescue the turtles. 100 pesos donation and you can send a turtle back in to the sea to live their lives. Well worth doing. Lovely sunset whilst doing so too.

Playa Carrizalillo was small and self-enclosed with several small, local restaurants, and was great for swimming. Playa Zicatela was great for nightlife and restaurants. But Playa Bacocho was probably my favorite. It is not commercialized, except for one resort that you can buy beer, water...More
