hat will leave you breathless.

It is a very special place to take a healthy or adventurous vacation with your partner,
family or friends. Disconnecting a bit from technology and connecting with nature.
Not only you will spend a magical time, but you will return to your home renewed.

What makes Arroyo Seco unique is its rural place with virgin beaches, without tourism where
technology and business development has not reach yet.
Ideal for nature lovers that like quiet places with no tourism, that seek to reset and recharge.
In its surroundings it has beautiful beaches and fields of mangos, papayas and coconuts.

Arroyo Seco has a small town 5 minutes driving from the beach or 15 minutes walking,
with 358 habitants. It is a town where you will feel that you are in real Mexico,
since its essence remains intact in culture, simplicity and joy of its people.
Where you see the chickens running down the street, fishermen and farmers working

The lifestyle is very simple and sustainable. The streets are dirt roads and around this small town is
