San Bartolo places to visit and attractions

Especially in the summer month, breathtaking places for surfing fans like “El Peñascal” in the north with great waves and “La Ribera Sur” with rocks and breakwaters make San Bartolo a nice town to visit. Next, to surfing, San Bartolo is a perfect location to do other water activities like boating, water skiing, swift sailing, fishing,  or just plain swimming –but be prepared for the cold water — and or just get tan at the beach.
