Villas Gaia was a sanctuary and a tropical haven. The kind-hearted staff works together to create the serene, clean, and luxurious setting while cultivating a rustic and cozy atmosphere. Our private villa was an oasis—very comfortable, spacious, and complete with AC and private patio. We...More

I agree. You can walk to the beach. But the ocean is very rough. We did see a lot of scarlet macaws in the threes close to the beach. It's nice to go for a walk but not for a swim.
