You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying in the immediate vicinity. This beach is not just a pleasant attraction, it's special in that it's one of the few quiet beaches in Caribya. While El Calento de Dario Beach might be a bit off the beaten path, it allows travelers to truly relax and claim their own space on the beach.
