Nice beach, I missed the trashbins. Some trash on the beach. Less busy than Playa san Lorenzo. Less salespeople, but the ones who are there are friendly and when you say 'no' they move on.

Very calm water with a wide sand beach. Not as many people as in Malecon. Very close to the Malecon - only $1 taxi to get there.

This area is very residential and it has a really nice beach as well as Salinas. I don’t mind being away from the noise. You can have both peace and quiet and party your head off in waking distant.
