Good bay for snorkeling. Clam clear waters and a lot of different fish to view. Some nice drop off areas and rocks for the fish it hide.

A great beach with plenty of drink and food choices. Restaurants won’t pressure you to only support them. If you want a quiet days at the beach this is a great choice.

This is a gringo place at best. Nino was useless as a waiter..he only catered to large groups. Today was the 5th time we have gone there. Each time we tipped far more than our bill. The norm was at least 3 times the bill....More

This beach is nice but I found the water to be a bit rough. I wasn’t comfortable in the water. Go visit the restaurant La Casa Del Abuelo. They are very kind and it’s a great menu!

We only stopped here for a short time as part of our boat tour, but definitly a place that can be visited later on by taxi. Very quaint and peacful. There is an area designated for swimming or snorkeling only, no boats.

Great spot for wave jumping and a seafood meal. Reasonably priced. Take a cab or arrive by boat. Try the pineapple stuffed with shrimp or a huge cocktail served in a coconut.

Nice beach and decent snorkelling but very busy with pushy restaurant owners. But cheap beer is a plus!
