  • Although Cavancha is better known, Playa Brava is a better place to stay. It has the best hotels and apartments. It's a newer, cleaner sector. Although its beach is not suitable for bathing and has tidal waves, the view you have of the sea is beautiful. Lots of activities on your coast. Close to the Jumbo, the mall, restaurants. Try to stay close to the peninsula so that you are central.

  • It is a very extensive and attractive beach although it is true it is not suitable for bathing, if you can cool off on its shore and sunbathe in its extensive areas of very nice and quiet sand, in all its extension there is a walk with many gardens , entertaining, some pubs and restaurants, highly recommended to tour as a couple or family.
