San Bernardo Islands
San Bernardo islands are just across Rincon del Mar. From the beach we can see 3 (the bird island, Palma and Manglare). A small boat ride and you are in the archipelago. Deserted beaches are yours, the discovery of Islote (the most densely populated island in the world)... This is the starting point for a beach day or snorkeling.
The advantage from Rincon del Mar is that you can hire a boat for 200,000 pesos for the day (4 persons). If you come alone or in pairs we will try to find you companions for the day if you want to share the fair.
It's nicer to have your own a boat and make your program rather than sharing "intimacy" of a paradise beach with 50 people.
The Hostel is NOT a travell agency. We don't take commission from anybody. We don't take responsability for the activities. Fair is Fair. We just try to put you in contact.
Your natural companions when you go on the San Bernardo Islands are the fins, masks, snorkels.
Corals and hundreds of tropical fish are all yours. It is an immersion in a natural and giant aquarium.
In addition, no need to go deep. You tell the "captain" to take you on a zone the depht you want (from 2 meters to your limit).
Rincon del Mar is more than a beach. Walking distance from the hostel with 1 or 2 guides, you will explore the arrears of the village. During the ride you will see quantity of plants and animals. The guides explain the trees used in construction, plants that heal, those you can eat.
There are beautiful birds, parrots, woodpeckers ... and especially the howler monkeys.
The guide picks you up on the hostel’s beach. You’ll ride on the long beach and then you go a little inland. With a little luck you will see iguanas, sloths...
