This was an amazing day. We took a cab from Barcelo for 65 pesos, had a mud “bath” from Inese 100 pesos and the best Fish burger at La Bocana restaurant which we will talk about for years. Do it!

Plenty of cabs around there to take you back. Also there are those that will call someone they know to come get you.
