Side Activities


In the mornings we can take a hike (or a motorbike ride) to the nearby hill ‘Pilon de Azucar’ with a great view over the landscape.

Or watch the beautiful desert sunrise, explore the Devil’s Cove and go snorkelling for lobsters there. 

Your Accommodation


You will be staying in chinchorros (huge comfy hammocks) in a traditional Posada/Rancheria, right in front of the spot. Tutorial on how to sleep best included!

If you still prefer a room, this is available too at an additional cost.

Staying in a desert village brings you back to basics, there is little energy and water, so be prepared.
