While this tiny hamlet may seem small, there are sites to see, things to do and services to fulfill your needs and maximize each day in town.

Some compare Lo de Marcos to a cruise ship… On any given day you may see the same people two or three times.

When greeting someone for the first time in a morning the proper phrase is “Buenos Dias“. The second time you cross paths with the same person in the same day, the proper phrase is “Adios”. This does not mean ‘goodbye‘, but rather, ‘Hello‘. Other phrases may be, “Qué tal” or “Quiubo“.   In any case… a smile goes a long way!


Here is a partial list of sites, services and activities to keep you busy.

    Do they allow golf carts on the “local” roads, to sub for a car when needed? Does it need anything special ( tags, license, etc)?

      Hello Robert, Golf carts usage in-town is allowed and you don’t need any license.
