Turquoise water, sandy roads, and palm trees are what makes El Cuyo so charming. Enjoy this tranquil little paradise far away from mass tourism. Relax on the beach, go for a swim and eat at the little cafés and restaurants.
El Cuyo is a tiny fishing village with little infrastructure. Before coming, you should definitely get some cash because there aren't any ATMs. You won't find a supermarket for grocery shopping, however there are little shops where you'll find basic stuff, fruits, vegetables, beer, etc.
El Cuyo is one of the best spots for Kitesurfing in México. Just pump your kite and launch it directly in front of our house!
