    If you're looking for beautiful beaches, a chilled vibe or a place to surf that hasn't been discovered by the masses so far, this is what you're looking for. If anything Playa Gigante is even too isolated but I think that's gonna change soon.

    We love that Gigante still has an undiscovered and chilled out vibe to it, and we're glad you liked it too! Hope you come back soon!
