The town was littered with dog poos, never seen fouling to that extent before - hazardous to walk around with young kids. Not much to do in town with kids, few shops and some cafes/bars. Quite a cool hippy/surfer vibe to the place - so...More

El Cotillo is a paradise for self contained people who prefer the beautiful lagoons or the wild, open beach to the flashing lights, crowds and bustle of Correlejo. Swim surrounded by multi coloured fish and not a McDonalds or Subway in sight. We didn't want...More
