The Las Tunas Sanctuary is located between Calle Mangos and Camino Internacional on the beach.
From Centro, take Topete to the "Otra Lado." Turn left on Horizonte,
pass school, then bear Right on Camino a Las Playitas. Travel about 1.5 miles until you reach Calle Los Mangos on left. Take
it all the way untill you reach the dunes and turn RIGHT, go about 1/2 mile and you will see the parking area.
