Good and free place to sleep. No shadow, in front of the sea with strong currents though, and not for surfing. But this place is better to stay than el cuco town.

Buen lugar para dormir gratis. No hay sombra, frente al mar, aunque tiene corrientes fuertes para nadar y no es para surfear. Pero este lugar esta mejor para quedarse que el pueblo el cuco.

Public parking, with plenty of space, for small and big rigs. We spent two nights there, with two more RVs. Felt safe.

Great little spot, very chilled and friendly locals. we'll lit up at night and felt very safe. right next to the ocean, and the restaurants allowed us to use their toilets. I didn't feel any mosquitoes during the night, but there are fire ants. However, i didn't get bitten. decent spot!

Really great spot to stay! Definitely recommend! Super quiet even on a Friday night. Beautiful sand art installation on display currently!
There was a pylon blocking the way out (and in) when we left in the morning. Not sure if it was there all night? The nice man just moved it for us (you can move it yourself too, it’s just a small orange one).

flat car park right on the beach. some restaurants nearby. we watched a nice sunset from the beach. prices at restaurants okay. relatively quiet. the toilets were closed but the restaurant owners had the key. the showers weren't working and there was not even water coming from the taps. we had a beer in the restaurant and used their bucket shower at the back of the kitchen.
