Welcome to La Ventanilla
Some 2.5km along the road west from Mazunte, a sign points to the tiny beach village of La Ventanilla, 1.2km down a dirt track. La Ventanilla is home to a community-led eco-project protecting turtles, crocodiles and a long, wild beach and lagoon. You can take a boat trip on the lagoon to see crocodiles, and go bird-watching or ride a horse along the beach. Somehow this tiny village manages to have two rival cooperatives offering these services: both have some English-speaking guides and do a fine job.
