          Reenvío la consulta, por las dudas que la enviada inicialmente no se haya publicado. Estoy próximo a viajar para conocer tanto a El Refugio como a la Playa Chihuahua. Me gustaría saber si existe conexión directa entre la Posada y la playa, de manera tal de no tener que transformarme, aunque sea por unos minutos, en un "textil" para recorrer la distancia entre ambas. Muchas gracias.
