This is a busy beach with many vendors offering food (coconut filled with shrimps is very popular) and drinks. Life music seems to be common and you can rent a horse or ATV here. It's worth a visit if you are in the area but it's not a beach I would necessarily feel compelled to drive to for relaxation.

where else do you see horses and ATV's right on the beach along with the Mexican vendors? the beach is not nearly as nice as you will find north of the border. and combine this with the multi-hour wait crossing the border, and unless you are going there to party, i am not sure if this one is worth the...

Friday & Saturday's you can find a parking place on Benito Juarez, things are not so crazy on those days as they were in the past. Locals happy to greet and serve you.

the beach is....just a beach. nothing special. the water was pretty cold. the beach was pretty dirty. it's very hard to sit on the beach and relax when you're being asked constantly by people to buy something from them. it's also hard to relax when there's nearby horses and you can smell their feces. the beach is a little more...

They have really cleaned this place up. It has a lot of new places I haven't tried yet. Great city to visit for value and shopping, eating adventures.

I ate breakfast there two or three times and it was wonderful. You got large portions and very reasonably priced. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

What's to say, the beach is expansive, white and clean. Vendors everywhere prodding you but it is Mexico...
