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

This is a very pretty and relaxed area in town. All the fishing boats that come in, the wharf, water taxis to the island of 'cats' (and there are a lot of wandering cats at the waterfront too), lots of restaurants and shops all make...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

Nice to visit and walk around. Cabs are plentiful and cab drivers are very friendly too. This area is still not very commercialized and I like it that way. There are many restaurants and bars and shops within walking distance.

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