Dirty beach, there is no sand in the water. Instead there's mud so good luck getting out from it. If you ever go to paddle surf, don't go with the company "Paddle Paradise". They just don't know how to give a good treatment to their...More

This is the closest "beach" to the city, but i would not go in it. the neighborhood close by is not the best in the world. There are a lot of restaurants and bars opening up here, and hopefuly that will fix up the place.

This a normal beach, Pacific side of Panama. A poor town Veracruz. The Playa Bonita Hotel is located in Veracruz and some small restaurant that you can have whole fried fish with patacones is ok. Normal...
