Imagine walking 50 feet to a nearly abandoned beach…


Empty beach


Then imagine walking down the one main street in the town and ordering a jugo de frutas mixtas (mixed fruit juice smoothie) and receiving a concoction of fresh, tropical fruit…



Juice vendors


Imagine taking your fresh fruit smoothie breakfast and sitting down on the beach and taking in the views…


Beach in the morning

Perfect water

Boats in the bay


Imagine walking down this small beach with crystal clear waters and climbing on and over the rocks to get a better view of this idyllic small little town…


The Sea


Across the bay


Imagine finding the perfect rocks for skipping on this calm, beautiful little bay…


Skipping rocks


Imagine laying your towels down for the day, just mere steps away from the perfect Caribbean waters, flagging down the man selling cups of fresh shrimp and squid, waving for the man selling recently homemade coconut cookies, checking out the various crafts and jewelry being sold by the nicest, not-at-all pushy vendors (non-pushy touts, only in Colombia), and spending the day reading and swimming and relaxing.

Imagine ending your day with the perfect sunset…
