We took a drive with our friend Tom on Sunday over to the Mar Bravo side of the peninsula and stopped at the Punta Carnero hotel. The views are just magnificent but these waters are very dangerous and there are signs warning not to swim because of the riptide and undertow. At high tide it does not look like there is much of a beach behind the hotel but I’m sure at low tide it would be a beautiful walk. The hotel is very quiet, dining room was large and airy. They have a pool and you can walk down to the beach.
The hotel is located on Mar Bravo approximately 20 minutes by taxi from the malecon in Salinas.
