San Pancho Mexico recreation and activities

San Pancho is famous for its world-class sunsets!

Activity #1 is to take your camera to the beach and capture the glory of San Pancho's idyllic sunsets.

Tip - the best colors are found when there are wispy clouds above.

Don't forget to submit your best photo to the newsletter as a candidate for Photo of the Week!


The beaches along this part of the coast sometimes possess a strong undertow and therefore are not super-conducive to water sports. Therefore San Pancho activities tend to lean towards the creative:

- Art

- Photography

- Writing

- Yoga

....or enjoying the natural environment of the flora & fauna.


Live music is also a feature of many nights at local restaurants.

And of course, a pleasant time can be spent meandering amongst the village shops.

Town art galleries or events also inspire, while a yoga studio provides

classes and other teachers offer private sessions.

Massage and homeopathic healing possibilities also abound, while for

those of you looking for relaxation, it is hard to beat lying out

at the beach or beside your villa’s pool.
