Louis at Hotel Las Tortugas - 5/10 - If all goes well, on Monday, Playa Grande will allow exercising and surfing from 7 till 9 AM with certain distancing restrictions. Be careful, if you break the rules, you could end up with a huge fine. Please help the police and rangers do their job and we will move forward with the opening up of the recreational areas. A lot of people have successfully worked for this logical approach which to some government and medical officials appear risky since we don’t have confirmation of the virus in this part of the province.
