Why this is Bruce’s "Most wonderful place on the planet!
Start with the all natural surroundings. A mile of dunes in both directions to the broad white sand beach and then the turquoise shallow water turning to deep midnight blue as the sand drops off a kilometer offshore.
Being in the Marine Park there is no vehicle traffic on the beach ( turtle care takers come most days in season (June to January on ATV) and some are moved to seed other beaches. You can go for days, even weeks w/o seeing anyone except for a few other EcoPalapians.
The activities are many including world class SCUBA, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, wind sports, SUP, mountain biking and hiking on maintained mountain and mesa trails, arroyo hikes, hot springs, fishing, jogging, horseback riding +. Dan chalked up 6 new birds on his life list and last night saw many lit up scorpions on the drive way under the black light. Iguanas, lizards, birds, hermit crabs, Western Skunks, racoons and even badgers have passed through this year along with fox, deer and small ringtail like cats.
Then there is the sea life, DUH.
The climate is the best - high desert with little humidity and being beach front on the point we get all the water cooled breezes. Oh, there is tropical storm season (September & October with rare exceptions ) but in reality it's like mud season in the rockies after a snow storm, a few muddy days (there is a possibility of a hurricane (September & October with rare exceptions ) but you can vacate in a timely manner for the rare event. Besides that the cool breeze is the norm and among our greatest blessings here. No bad bugs too.
You will be fortunate on Playa Las Barracas (the huts) where there is a small population of off the grid folks and a Dark Sky initiative is practiced. Gaze On!
But there is more! Punta Los Mangles (this Mangrove Point) is formed by erosion over geologic time flowing out of the beautiful backdrop La Trinidad Mountains pushing out meters of sand into the Gulf of California through an estuary that has formed complete with mangrove surrounded lagoon which you drive through a portion of to reach Eco Palapa. Mangle Botoncillo- Button Wood Mangrove -Conocarpus Erectus is an endangered species that survives without tidal flows but has its toes in the brackish high water table. A number of palm oasis are scattered in the Punta Los Mangles estuary which could be 400 acres.
Good relaxation, reading time and sleeping while absorbing all the eye candy, breezes and soft surf which has to be a part of the magic too. Indoor/outdoor living on Punta Los Mangles is a nature lovers, off the grid paradise on the quiet, dark beach in the very healthy Marine Park
