South of town, a half hour away is Isla Plana and La Azohia, small hamlets that have a spectacular natural landscape and are a truly unique and different from the north, where overcrowding may be the constant. There are also steep areas where access may be more difficult, however, are excellent locations to enjoy a bath.
