Huge waves, sandy bottoms.Almost died there a couple times having too much fun.
But alas, nothing lasts forever and there are hotels from one end to the other. Still a magical place though.
You have any pictures by then? Mazunte is 6 km away and they have their own guidelines to build. They are against asphalt, concrete and big buildings in order to preserve the landscape
