The beaches of this region, called Costa Norte, offer a unique experience of coexisting with virgin nature.

Santiago Ixcuintla is a place that reflects the colors and essence of Mexico. To the southeast of the town, there are virgin beaches such as Los Corchos, with a gentle tide; Sesteo has an olive ridley turtle protection camp.

And in Boca de Camichin, you can enjoy nature and watch the fishermen who master the artisanal process of oyster farming. You can travel through the estuaries by boat to admire the great diversity of birds until you reach Jaguar Island, where several felines have been found, or sail to Mexcaltit√°n Island.

Playa Novillero is the longest beach in Latin America, stretching almost 90 kilometers long and half a kilometer wide. With calm waters, it is ideal for swimming and relaxing. The beaches in this area do not yet have formal lodging services.
