Welcome to The Sunset Coast
Stretching for about 50km from Mariato in the north to Parque Nacional Cerro Hoya in the south, the Sunset Coast is terra incognita for most travelers. That's a shame, for it offers some amazing off-the-beaten-path attractions.
Here you'll find long, sandy beaches virtually empty of holiday-makers, excellent surfing and the chance to see three species of turtles hatching. There are nature walks in the mangroves and Parque Nacional Cerro Hoya is just down the road.
The gateway to the Sunset Coast is Santiago, about 60km north of Mariato. Other important settlements include Malena and Torio, 11km and 15km south of Mariato respectively.
