Went here to swim safely- which you can do in the pools- on the day we visited it was very windy so we didn't stay for long as the concrete around the pools was rough not so comfortable

We visited this place too early before touristic season as it looked empty and abandoned. One pool. Poor. That's all folks.

Charco Azul is a very nice man made rock pool filled with ocean water. It was very nice to swim in the cold water and to feel like swimming in the sea, while not actually being in the sea. It was fun to watch the...More
