It's not quite finished yet, but if you want a cool place to hang out with almost no people around, this is the place to do it. Funky old bar, great beach, lovely chairs, hammocks, the whole deal. No food, though.

Great place to lounge on the beach away from it all. Owners are very friendly. Great place to have a wedding.

Never been before, heard it was nice. This place has much potential it,s crazy. Wonderful location with beautiful views. When we were there it looked abandoned, except for a couple of workers building a palapa! Has very clean restrooms also no food was being served.

Stopped here while out walking. This place looks like that at one time it may have been a great place to spend the day. Now, however, it is run down and worn. There were no waiters and we had to go to the bar and...More

If you get something from the bar, either food or drink, there is no charge for the beach or museum. Food was good. We also took a snorkel tour out of there that we highly enjoyed!
