But, the true gift of Zancudo goes much deeper then the nice weather and beautiful remote beach during the Winter months !!
The gift that stays with you, the gift that touches you, the gift that makes you come back again and again are the people that this place attracts ! ;)
There has been many things said about Playa Zancudo over the years. "The home of the wanted and the un-wanted !" ... " A sunny place for shady people" ... "We are all here because We are not all there !" ... " Playa Zan-Cuckoo - An open air SANITARIUM " !!! ... but these sayings are just a reflection of the humorous mind set of the people that look upon Zancudo as a place to be yourself and enjoy this remote Tropical Beach Paradise at 'The End of The Road' !! It's true that the cast of Characters here is truly unique, but then ... so is Zancudo ;)
Zancudo has a local population of less than five hundred people with a couple of General Stores, a small Elementary School and a three man Police Station. This is not a "Club Med" or some Tourist Trap Town where some local guy is on every corner trying to sell you a Coconut with "Pura Vida" painted on it !! No fancy Condos or Boardwalks or all that other nonsense. It's just a little quiet remote Beach Town with a character and charm all it's own .
There is another saying we use around here when someone asks if they would enjoy a vacation in our little remote beach town - " If getting away from it all is what you are all about " ... Visit Zancudo !! ;) !!
Pura Vida !
