We have been on many whale trips in the USA, off coast of Oregon and California. And have seen many whales. However, this experience was beyond expectations. There are whales everywhere. As you might expect from these amazing creatures, they all have different personalities. Some...More

Pachico's reputation is well deserved. We booked the cabana package (with bath) for three full days. The food was varied, fresh, wholesome, and well prepared. Happy hour lasted hours and was included. The cabins simple but oh-so-convenient right on the lagoon. But the main reason...More
