There is a lot of fishing done on the waters in front of the house. Various types of fish and large shrimp are routinely caught by the local fishermen in their canoes. It is possible to purchase fish from them by simply waving them over. Fish is also readily available at the market in town. We have a person who delivers fresh fish and shrimp to our house once a week. Of course, if you prefer not to cook, there is a very good
restaurant just down the road.

The house is within easy walking distance of San Vicente. The middle of town is about 20 minutes away walking or you can catch a moto, which is a rickshaw type vehicle built around a mototrcycle which costs 50 cents to town.Bahia de Caraquez is located across the bridge which crosses the estuary and can be reached by taxi. The ride is usually $2.00 one way and takes about 10 minutes.

Beach umbrellas and chairs can be rented also.

The cost is around $8.00 to $10.00 dollars depending on the bus line.
