A common question we get while talking with people interested in booking a stay in town is "how far away are the different options from the beach, the restaurant and the Beach Club?".

This week there have been large flocks of Frigate birds either flying very, very high, or flying low over the Pitaya islands.

The Camino Catalinas building is starting quickly take shape.  Walking past you can see the european style half round copper rain gutters.  The shape of this rain gutter allows for optimal water flow, leaving behind less leaves and debris.
