The military base at Punta Paloma came as a bit of a surprise to us. Tucked away at the far end of a narrow road which is half buried by sand the gates, now open, still give a sense of foreboding and trespass as you approach them.
The military base is still functioning but not to the same extent as it used to. Most base houses are boarded up and a central radar compound seems to be the only operational part of the base.
