Charco de los Clicos

Film Location in El Golfo & Around

A small emerald-green pond, just in from the beach; the colour comes from the algae in the water. This was the famous backdrop for Raquel Welch and her fur bikini in the iconic publicity still for the 1960s One Million Years BC movie. Back to the present, the visual paint palette is further enhanced by the wonderfully colourful and textured volcanic rock surroundings. It is not safe to swim here though, as it can get very rough.
