Nice place to visit...awesome water views..crystal clear water...restaurants are OK, but high priced...the most fun was feeding the sardines (for $1.00 a pack) to the large fish & pelican's.

Lots of parking, good lighting, nice water views and lots of restaurants open although they pretty much all serve the same food and drinks. Very nice to stroll around, drinking beer and nibbling on street food while listening to live music

It's a broadwalk next to the lagoon. We went in the evening. We found some seats to stop and listen to music and karoke for awhile. It was nice. There were a few restaurants and bars. Free admission, parking, latin music and dancing. Fun time

We went here on a Thursday during the day and there was really nothing to do. Most of the shops were closed and the only restaurants open only had fried food. Nothing healthy at all. Everyone said it's much better on Friday and Saturday nights.

La Guancha is a collection of small restaurants that sell local food at good prices. There is a deck over the water with views of the marina. It is a nice place to have lunch at affordable prices. Otherwise, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit the place.

This little bar on the end of La Guancha made the best piña colada on the island! The boardwalk was nice too. We saw iguanas and pelicans. Very pretty place.

Board walk open in the evening gets very busy, has many restaurants, inexpensive and sit down, as well as vendors. Bathrooms are overcrowded but abundant. Music plays various spots throughout the boardwalk. In the morning, there is a beautiful view and it is completely empty besides the anchored sail boats.
