Quieter and more relaxing than some of its neighbours, with whitewashed buildings and a dark sandy beach that slopes gently into the calm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, holidays to San Agustin have a tranquil atmosphere where you can relax and recharge your batteries.

The beach is ideal for swimming and snorkelling with scuba diving instruction available, giving a chance to explore the colourful underwater marine life. Shops, bars and restaurants line the beach meaning you never need to wander far from your sun bed.

If you can drag yourself away from the beach, then there are plenty of excursions available with holidays in San Agustin. A day out at the local go-karting track will bring out the competitive side in you, or head to Sioux City Wild West World. There are two water parks close by with Aquasur being the largest on the island offering rides, slides and flumes for all the family. Palmitos Park is home to many species of birds and butterflies; an aquarium, monkeys and crocodiles.
