    Corinto is a quiet town, with a pleasent beach. I like the view from the bay. It looks like Jurrasic park with the volcano in the background. I dont know about high quality hotels, but the people are pleasent.

    I be there for more than 40 times.
    later on, when I retired (pension) I go to there for the rest of my life.
    I will live with my wife and kids there, because my wife is from Corinto and 2 of my kids where born there.
