Playa Galeón

Playa Galeón Review

Just north of the airstrip and east of the Hotel Punta Galeón, this small beach is one of Contadora's most popular spots. It's where the ferry arrives and departs from, so it can get crowded during the high season. But, it's a good swimming beach, with calm, blue-green water, and it has decent snorkeling. This is a pretty convenient spot to hang out: the hotel's restaurant is next to the beach, Gerald's is just up the hill, and the welcome center, accross from the air strip, rents everything from towels and beach umbrellas to jet skis. Amenities: food and drink, toilets, water sports. Best for: snorkeling, swimming.
