Try km 30 and above. Wow. Pelicans, seals, dolphins, whales, great blue herons, vultures and stray dogs. Great beach. Warm and beautiful water. Great sunrise and sunset South Campos

Went for long walks on the endless beach and into the village. The shrimp and fish are world class as good as anything you could find anywhere in the world.

If you go anywhere in the South Beach area, make sure you lock your car and belongings in a safe. Don't leave anything valuable in your room, including passports, money, camera equipment, computers, anything. You'll get robbed as soon as you turn your back. Sorry,...More
