Known locally as San Pedro, my town’s population has grown significantly over the last several years but thanks to responsible tourism practices, it has kept its natural and local charm – something you do not find a lot these days. When in town, the best source of advice is always the locals, go ahead and ask anyone for directions or recommendations and you will get help with a big smile.
