      Camp at Puerto Agua Verde

      The tiny fishing village of Puerto Agua Verde has a church, a sometimes open bodega, and two "restaurants" which are rarely open and are exactly what you would picture of a small beach eatery at the end of a dirt road some 60 miles from the nearest gas station. The gorgeous, quarter-mile long bea...
