During your free time, you may discover the magical coast of Oaxaca and the three coastal fishing villages of Mazunte, San Agustinillo, and Zipolite. You can also relax by the calm bay in nearby San Agustinillo, where local cafés line the beach sheltering under a multitude of coconut palms swaying in the breeze, or take your surfboard down to Mazunte or Zipolite for more action-packed surf.

You may also take a 30-minute walk from the Hridaya Center to Punta Cometa, the southernmost peninsula on the Pacific side of the North American continent where the sunsets are spectacular with the fading light bouncing off the sand and cliff faces.

You may join an early morning ocean tour where you will encounter a sea swarming with life, depending on the season, like whales, dolphins, turtles, stingrays, and flying fish are often there to behold or leave at first light for the nearby ecological reserve of Ventanilla, a mangrove swamp where you can see crocodiles, deer, iguanas, countless birds, and more.

Another option is to join one of Ola Verde’s expeditions; they offer fantastic half-day river rafting excursions on the Río San Francisco, just north of Tonameca, visit the museum and aquarium of the Mexican Turtle Center in Mazunte and get to know the life of one of the greatest species in the world or head to the breathtaking waterfalls of the Cascadas Mágicas de Copalitilla.
