Tour of Isla del Río Cuale
Historical data reveal that this island was formed in 1926 after a hurricane caused the Río Cuale to overflow. The river is born in the mountains of a picturesque town called El Cuale and flows into the beginning of Playa Los Muertos, where, to date, it continues its course and serves as a halfway point between El Centro and the Romantic Zone.
This site is divided into two zones. The first, probably the best known, begins with the second section of the Malecón, where there are concrete stairs that go down to the commercial area, which includes bars and restaurants, as well as various handicraft and traditional Mexican clothing stands.
The second section connects with Gringo Gulch and houses restaurants, small boutiques and a cultural venue where inspiration is transformed into art. A sculpture dedicated to John Huston is preserved here, which was created in 1988 by Carlos Ramírez to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the filming of the movie The Night of the Iguana.
Walking on its traditional, rustic wooden suspension bridge is a real experience that tests your balance and allows you to feel the fresh air, observe the river and listen to the relaxing sounds of nature.
