About five kilometers north of Ventanas, on its namesake harbor and off the main highway, the community of Horcón is a combination fishing port and artisan/artists’ colony with a holdover reputation as a hippie hideaway. Its single main street dead-ends at the small but sheltered beach, where fisherfolk sell their catch directly to waterfront picadas.
Just to the south, Playa Cau Cau is a onetime nude beach that has gentrified but is now a more conventional destination for sunbathers, surfers, and swimmers. The only remaining nude beach is Playa La Luna, immediately south.
