The two- and three-story thatch-roof cabanas face several miles of sand beaches. About 15 minutes south of Puerto López, it is a favorite among tourists, who come to get closer to nature. Many travelers come for a night and end up spending a week, lounging in hammocks and chatting at the open-air bar. The restaurant emphasizes vegetarian fare.
