Playa Los Muertos
Los Muertos and Olas Altas are the two closest beaches to the central square. The former is the most popular, and backs onto a magnificent 200-foot (60 meter) pier that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The beach was named Los Muertos (Deadman’s Beach) because the site was once used as a cemetery. Excavations conducted at the site during the 1920’s unearthed human bones in ceramic pots, a custom of some indigenous tribes. A favorite for banana boat rides and beach volleyball, there are more beautiful beaches in the area, but this is an iconic spot that you definitely need to visit.
