Things to Do
There is something in the air at Coconuts by the Sea that makes it a special place. Artifacts have been found on the property indicating that this site has been a gathering place for people for many centuries. So, if you are looking for a spiritual place to wind down or recharge your batteries, this just might be it. Yoga classes and massages are available.
There’s lots to see if you are into nature or the environment. Every January and February, there’s whale watching, as the mamas and babies migrate north. You will see great pacific dolphins skipping through the water and, depending on the time of year, you may see giant sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand or you can help the hatchlings find their way to the ocean.
The Pacific coast of Mexico is perfect for bird watchers, there are many species of birds to see, from delicate humming birds to squawking parrots to pelicans gliding over the surf looking for fish. Butterflies, too. You can walk to see crocodiles in their natural habitat. Iguanas, Silver tailed foxes, and Kuwaitis are occasional visitors.
