Playa Marinero

 

Things to Do

Beaches

Playa Principal

The stretch of sand is narrow. The water calm and the beach backed by rustling palms. Mexican families flock here on Sunday and holidays to wade and paddle in the shallows. And local fishermen cast their nets at the sheltered west side of the bay or launch small and colorfully painted boats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Begins at the jutting rocks Below the hotel Santa Fe. Here the shoreline begins curving toward the south and increasingly faces the open ocean. The surf gets rougher, and swimmers exercise caution

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Playa Puerto Angelito and Playa Manzanillo

With small beaches, submerged rock formations and close-in shelves of coral, these sheltered spots are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.

They can be reached either by car or taxi, or by boat reached from playa principal or a circuitous concrete footpath.

Playa Carrizalillo

One of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto. Some steps to get down & to get back up. Submerged rock formations and close-in shelves of coral, these sheltered spots are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. Is the best beach to swim.

 

 

 

 

Playa Zicatela

Considered being one of the worlds best surfing beaches. The wide expanse of golden-colored sand stretches for miles, and the thundering pacific breakers crashing onto it are impressive indeed. The biggest waves occur between July and November. Surfers from all over the world congregate at Zicatela. Spectators line the beach to watch these daredevils finesse the “Pipeline”, a long tubular swell of water. Needless to say, swim here at your own risk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Playa Bacocho

Another strip of sand, waves and undertow make it better for sunning and hiking than swimming.

About 6 kilometers west of Puerto, which is encircled by mangroves and home to a rich variety of wetland bird species and tropical vegetation.

Here you can charter a boat from the various restaurants along the lagoon and take a sunset trip to “La Barra”.
