Prepare for Your Beach Adventure

As you gear up for your trip

Sun Protection

The sun here is a real champ, so be sure to bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat to stay sun-safe while you bask in the glorious rays.

Mosquito Defense

Those little critters can be quite the fans of tourists, so don’t forget a reliable mosquito repellent to keep them at bay and ensure your nights are itch-free.

Dive into Snorkeling

Speaking of snorkeling, if you’re a fan of vibrant coral reefs and tropical fish, pack your snorkeling gear. The waters here are teeming with underwater wonders waiting for you to discover.

Calm Waters

If you’re looking for a safe and not-too-deep spot for swimming, the bay right in front of Hotel La Barca is a great choice. Perfect for those who prefer calmer waters. Can have rocky patches so bring some water shoes.


Guiding Light

Planning to dine at beachfront restaurants at night? Bring a flashlight along. The area isn’t too well lit, and your trusty flashlight will help light the way.

Beach Towels

While the room provides towels for indoor use, it’s a good idea to bring your own beach towels for those long, relaxing days by the sea.

Footwear for Fun

A trusty pair of water-friendly sandals is a must-have for beachgoers. You might also consider water shoes for those rocky areas, which can be fascinating to explore. Especially if you’re into snorkeling, you’ll want good shoes for walking along the coastline.

Getting Around & Exploring

Find your ride

Colectivo Taxis: Your quickest option for getting to Pochutla is the colectivo taxi. These shared taxis pick up multiple passengers on their route until they’re full and then head straight to Pochutla. It’s an affordable option at $15 pesos per person, even less for shorter distances. Just remember to ask for a “colectivo” before you hop in to ensure you’re charged the local rate.

Comionetas or Pasajeras: If you’re up for a more local experience, consider the pickup trucks with canopies, known as “comionetas” or “pasajeras.” These vehicles also pick up passengers like taxis but can carry more people and make frequent stops along the way. The cost is just $10 pesos for passage to Pochutla, a bit less for shorter trips.
