Very special Place,there´s a big Lagoon in the back you can rent a Canoe to paddle around ,loads of Birds and mozzies of course in the lagoon.
Dolphins and Turtles in the Sea (check with the Locals on Full moon nights for Turtle watching.
Nice Staff at the "Rancho Carillo" if you want to camp leave your Stuff with Them ask for "Roberto"
Definetly the best in Guatemala we been to Puerto Escondido before and its almost as good especially the big Waves are better to handle and during the week, you`ll be the only ones out there.
Beautyful place, long Beach for endless walks, Good waves, nice people, no Crowds, no Hassle.
I´ll add some Pictures later.

Good spot - Good to see a place still exists where the locals havent been tainted by tourists. They were really respectful of everyone in the lineup, tourists and fellow surfers alike and had no attitude at all. They just surf because it is fun to go catch some waves with friends Simple as that
Hopefully it remains that way as id love to go back
