We stayed there for 7 days and it was fantastic. Lovely accomodations, very clean. Kitchen has all you would ever need. We made breakfast and lunch there, but had dinner out. We
had 2 wonderful dinners at Garden of Eden next door run by Jean who manages Raqueros.
The food and service was great! Had the rest of our dinners in town at some insanely good
local places I wont mention :)
You can rent Stand-Up Paddleboards right on the beach at Raqueros from
Kris or Jim. It is a Paddlers dream. We got so close to whales 3 times amd paddled the nearby
lagoon that looks like something out of pre-historic times. Very unspoiled.
Beach is perfect, and you know what you are doing, not hard at all to paddle out
on a nice sandy beach. few rocks but they can be avoided easily.
We will spend several months there next year.
I highly recommend Raqueros!! Jean is a great host
