La Peñita de Jaltemba

Rincón de Guayabitos

Jaltemba, a combination of Nahuatl and Spanish could be translated as “Place at the edge of the sand”. It can be said that this is the brother town of Rincón de Guayabitos, its closeness - only 5 minutes by car - and warm atmosphere are two powerful reasons to visit it.

La Peñita de Jaltemba shines for its natural spaces and air of a seaside town, simple and familiar that has made many travelers fall in love even to put down roots. You will see this in its streets, where foreigners and locals make up the community.

The afternoon scene is one of the greatest attractions of La Peñita de Jaltemba, which gathers groups of boats and nets on the sand, where fishermen gather at the end of the day to talk for a while.

But not only sailors gather at the edge of the sea, but also pelicans that have finished their day of fishing and take the opportunity to fly low as if they were taking a break from their arduous activities at sea.

Something you should know is that despite its apparent tranquility, La Peñita de Jaltemba has several places to stay. The accommodation offered ranges from small family hotels to bungalows or private apartments with which it preserves its peaceful and village style.

If you're looking for good food, atmosphere, and music, head to its Malecon. You will see many consumer centers served by families, let yourself be carried away by the smell of seafood on the coals, the smell won't fail.
