oh my God! It is absolutely breathtaking and perfect in every sense of the word. Warm clean calm waters. Clean sand, lots of monkeys and gorgeous views of mountains and trees and rocks while u swim close to the shore.

We went as part of our national park hike. Take towels, sunscreen and plenty of water. The hike is fantastic! We saw sloths, monkeys, iguanas and raccoons. The wildlife will help themselves to your belongings if you leave them unattended!
