Sheltered by rocky islands and cliffs, Playa San Augustin features fine, white sand, clear blue-green waters, and coral reefs that attract divers and snorkelers.

Rent snorkel equipment and a boat and head on to the reefs to explore the underwater life. The smell of fresh seafood and guacamole will likely lure you into one of the many palapa-style restaurants, where you can try authentic Mexican fare and cold cervezas.
