Tres Palmeras

5 of 5
Beautiful and well cared for home with kind and efficient caretakers. Right on beautiful beach so you can go to sleep with waves crashing. Very relaxing and low key with easy access to snorkeling, ruins, dining, fishing, shopping and more. We enjoyed just laying out on the back deck by the pool. We took our three teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We'd go back!
