"Las Animas - A great beach!" Las Animas by jamiesno

Las Animas Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 43 photos

A quiet, tiny beach inaccessible except by boat where sunbathers can relax in colorful beach chairs and choose from several rustic restaurants for Mexican fare. Snorkeling is popular in the gentle surf of this cozy beach. Rumor has it that Las Animas, The Souls, was named for a pirate who was killed returning to his ship after he had buried his treasure somewhere along the beach. It was never found and legend has it his ghost protects the lost loot.

You can see it on a map at:

In the picture is me with an Iquana, aka Tourist Trap.


When you visit here, you really do get the feeling you are in a secluded area and with Jungle is right there at the beach, I can only imagine what it is like in there in the rainy season!
