This beach is getting better although there is a lot of cleaning that still needs to be done. The small palapa restaurants are neglecting the beach.

Puerto Marques is one of the nicest beaches I've ever been to - anywhere. The narrow mouth of the bay keeps the waves down, so it's safe and fun even for the littlest kids to swim. The main road is a rutted mess with shops on one side selling bikinis, floaty toys, and coconuts; restaurants on the other side trying... More

We go to Puerto Marques every year. People so friendly and honest. Feel very safe. Love to stop for beer, sangria, and sopes. Some of the restaurants were wiped out in the hurricanes in Sept, but many are still there and in good shape.

Went here to snorkel and lay on beach for the afternoon. Once again Senor Baldo!!! Hooked us up with hugo and his boat! This guy is a fish! He took us out to the mouth of the bay to snorkel and it was great! Once again not the crystal clear water of cancun but very nice just the same!!!

We have been going to this area since 1980 and have faithfully followed our favorite waiter from restaurant to restaurant. Cheato is our man!!!... However, we felt really guilty this year because we found "Blue Water" and we could not resist the owners and staff not to mention the oven baked pizza and fish.... They even let us bring our...

Ok Ok and Blue Waters restuarants are our favorites. Cold beer and good food.. Beach is little hard to walk in this area as the sand is soft. Nice to change it up once in awhile out of the city.
