Further on along the bay, the wide creamy sand at Boca de Iguanas provides plenty of opportunities for gathering shells and interesting rocks that are washed up by the gentle surf. The sand is fine and smooth, and the beach covered by many rocks worn smooth by the pounding surf. At the north end of the beach, explore the cave with an alter to the Virgin Mary. More info...
