BeachNuts Beach Guide for:
PLAYA LAS BRISAS AND OJO DE AGUA
HORSEBACK RIDING - Let the horses put some wind in your hair as you ride along the beach. There is a nominal charge for horse rentals.
FISHING - "YES"
BIG GAME OFF-SHORE FISHING - Pursue marlin, sailfish, tuna, dorado, roosterfish and other local game and food species. Special arrangements have been made with world renowned “IXTAPA SPORTFISHING CHARTERS” to provide you with top quality fishing boats and equipment - available in nearby “PUERTO VICENTE GUERRERO”, only 10 minutes from away.
BIRD WATCHING - Take some time to relax and watch the colorful local species of tropical birds including hummingbirds, woodpeckers, roseate spoonbills, egrets, pelicans, great blue herons, frigates, and pink flamingos as they make their daily flights to and from the neighboring estuaries.
OBSERVE GIANT SEA TURTLES - Watch them lay their eggs on the beach. A chance to witness one of Nature's marvels. Unpredictable, but typically from August through November. A nocturnal event.
WATCH FOR OCEAN ACTIVITY - Whales (in certain seasons), dolphins and other interesting ocean inhabitants may be seen surfacing directly off the beach.
STAR GAZING - Outstanding on clear nights. Far from the lights of any cities.
TOURS - Guided tours with bilingual guides are available to provide visits to plantations and nearby towns to shop for traditional jewelry, hamacas and other crafts, as well as to other places of interest such as “CETMAR TECHNICAL COLLEGE” (established for the preservation of local sea turtles), and the local estuaries to view the inhabitants including caiman crocodiles.
SHOP THE LOCAL MARKETS - Each week the “TRAVELLING MARKET” makes its way from town to town, allowing residents and visitors to see and purchase items not otherwise available locally.
HARVEST YOUR OWN COCONUTS – Take what you need for a fresh drink or add your favorite libation. Available right on the property at no charge. Emiliano, our caretaker, will be happy to assist and show you how to prepare your coconut with a machete.
LIVE MUSIC – A variety of musicians are available, ranging from solo artists to eight-member groups, to entertain your private party or special moment. Everything from soft and romantic to hot salsa. A special treat for you while you dance in the sand under the sun or stars.
Once the sun disappears, behind the mountains, why not slip into the sea with that someone special and add your own live romantic music and VOILA! ;)
