  • It's amazing how in special conditions can proliferate a certain kind of life that makes things acquire a different vision. The views were amazing, I couldn't go down because I was crowded with people that day, just a kicker came into the gulf.

  • Very special to see: green water, red rocks, black beach and blue sea. Well worth it if you combine it with a restaurant in El Golfo. The route along the coast is also worth it. Stop at Los Hervideros down the other way to see what the water does to the rocks.
