          Is it walking distance to the beach? If not, is there easy transportation to the beach? We will not have a car. Thank you

          I agree. You can walk to the beach. But the ocean is very rough. We did see a lot of scarlet macaws in the threes close to the beach. It's nice to go for a walk but not for a swim.

          Hello, we need to escape for the morning hours and we would like to have a little breakfast and go to the beach, have a drink by the pool till lunch time and maybe have a snack. We would like to know if we could come to look at your place and hang out for the morning for future family members to possibly stay. Do you have breakfast available for visiting guest for checking your place out for a possible future over night stays?
