[quote=MikeRH]You can walk from Boca Del Rio to Mata Rocks along the beach quite easily [/
A curious bit of trivia ..... Mata Rocks is the name of a patch of coral along the reef 4.5 miles north of San Pedro, adjacent to a cut in the reef called Entrada de Mata (which you should be able to find on sea-maps). It is across from the subdivision called Mata Grande.
About 22 years ago two couples took over a small and very rustic inn just north of Mata Grande called La Finca (formerly Los Renegados) and renamed it Mata Rocks Hotel. Things changed and they decided to move their business into town, purchasing the former House of the Rising Sun. They took the name Mata Rocks with them..... Eventually the hotel was sold to its present owners and is still known as Mata Rocks.
The point of this trivia exercise is that Mata Rocks means different locations to different people,. But if you head north and walk the beach you can also go all the way north to the original Mata Rocks area. Lots of sandy beach, lots of beauty whichever way you choose to walk. The location of the original Mata Rocks hotel now boasts a massive home, just south of Rojo. After your historical beach walk, stop in at Rojo for a drink and a splash in the pool. They'll be glad to help you get rehydrated and find a water taxi ride back to town.
