The state’s most developed beach town is 18km southwest of Tonalá, though unless you visit during weekends, summer or holidays – when hotel prices rise and vacationing chiapanecos jam the place and its beachfront palapa seafood eateries – it's a small, ultra-sleepy fishing town. With flowers and trees lining the roads, and a shiny white three-story lighthouse in the center of town, it's an attractive little place and will suit those after an easy, 100% Mexican beach holiday experience.
