Customer Travel Tip: During wet season, the road is muddy mess - bring shoes that can get wet and be washed off. During dry season, road dust is everywhere - bring a scarf to cover your face.

Liked: the beach is beautiful

Disliked: there is no real town just a long dirt road. I would recommend other beach towns nearby like Montezuma.

Customer Travel Tip: Don't expect to stay clean. The dust from the road is everywhere but it's tolerable. Great for surfers of all levels, even if its your first time! If you aren't into surfing and/or hanging out at the beach this probably isn't the place for you. Enjoy the relaxed vibe and keep it positive.

Liked: Great surf culture, great food and great people!! Aweseome sunsets.

Disliked: The dusty dirt roads.
