The westernmost section of broad sand which stretches for around 500 metres Playa Rinconcito forms part of the crescent of Playa Mazunte.
Sloping gently into the turquoise waters the beach consists of a light golden sand, backed by rolling hills covered in native flora and basic thatched structures acting as cafes and restaurants during high season. The beach is primarily the haunt of European backpackers and independent travellers, who come for the relaxed atmosphere and chance to soak up the sun, swim in the ocean, try their luck on a surfboard or find inner peace at a yoga resort.
Lifeguards are present at peak times. Dogs are permitted to use Playa Rinconcito. From June to December of each year it’s possible to support conservation efforts by releasing newly hatched turtles. There’s a great range of accommodation options for anyone looking to spend a few days in the area.
