Bring your interest in a beautiful view and you won't be disappointed. When one pictures a beach, this is probably not the vision that comes to mind. Volcanic rocks are scattered about the area and a famous pair of arches have formed growing out from volcanic mass. There is not much in the way of sandy beaches to lie on, but a great view can be enjoyed from here. If you come here, you must try the El Dorado restaurant. It has been a local favorite for more than 30 years.
Eco Tours offers an opportunity for you to see the natural world, untouched by humans. Some of the tours offered are seasonal, such as whale watching and turtle camp, so check to see what is available during your stay.

Make your vacation an educational adventure that you will remember long after you return home; these tours are excellent for school-age children. Call for prices.
If you are staying in the southern part of the city, this is the perfect place for you. This is a great beach for looking at small marine life. The beach is rocky and that has created wading pools.

A visit to the Cuale Waterfalls may not be for everyone, as you need to be a nature lover willing to trek for about four hours to get there. Those making the trek will be rewarded with a dip in the pools that have formed below the beautiful waterfalls. Those who do not wish to walk can enjoy the adventure on horseback. The ride takes you through some of the most beautiful Sierra Madre scenery, with views of some serene and untouched beaches along the way. Guided tours are available.
