In addition to the special configuration of the place, the population, of about 384 inhabitants, is dedicated to work such as fishing, handicrafts and to a lesser extent to agriculture.

Another of the great attractions of the region is the warmth of its inhabitants who are catheterized by the affable and simple treatment.

This settlement has great tourist potential as its beaches and savannahs favor the development of the tourism sector.
