Playa De Los Patos

Reviewed By njpmln - Lebanon, United States

This is a unique ecosystem where a fresh water river pours from the mountains only a few hundred yards from the beach. Many places to eat and drink. Be careful of the sea which can be rough, yet beautiful. Most people stick to the river which has calm and relaxing pools as it pours into the sea.

Playa San Rafael

Reviewed By 310jacquelinen

This is a fabulous spot to surf and have a delightful and incredibly delicious meal on the beach- grilled fish to order with beans and rice, plantains....wash it down with a Presidente. Swimming isn’t recommended because of rip tides but go up by the river to swim in clean and clear pools. You may meet some Peace Corp volunteers taking a well-deserved break and learn about some communities off the beaten track.

Mina de Larimar

Reviewed By 273DavidL - Fort Myers, United States

First of all, I am experienced in visiting mining locales around the world so this is no big surprise for me. However, most people would find the road to the mine difficult, scary and possibly impossible. Fortunately, we were in the care of experienced guides but even so, recent torrential rains made the road more difficult than usual. Many parts of the road were destroyed. This is the only place in the world where Larimar is mined and that makes this special. Mining, for the most part, is by hand. Tons of Basalt must be removed to find a few pounds of the gem. I would not recommend this for a casual tourist, but if you are into rocks, gems, and minerals, it is worth the effort. You will not be able to make this trip on your own. You will need to go with someone who knows the road and has a vehicle that can do the job.
