Took a taxi here and spent the day in front of El Zarape Restaurant and Felix took care of us, putting our chaise lounge chairs out with an umbrella and a little table. Buckets of cold beer, the best margueritas, fresh fish baked in the clay oven. We swam and sunbathed, people watched for about 4 hours....so much fun that... More

Very pretty cove and some good places to eat. I spent the day in a hammock, with no pressure to do anything but relax and enjoy my day. Really nice afternoon.

Definitely a destination for dining, sun and sand. Whether you arrive by a bays tour boat or taxi you will find a nice beach and an overwhelming assortment of seafood restaurants. Worth going.

Catch your own fish and have them cook it for you. They have wood fire... More

A very nice small bay with a good depth of sand. Plenty of watersports, but there was very little hassle. Go to Nivel Mar, and outstanding beach bar.

A little pricey for where it was. The group had a fish plate but the food was very good a little different from what you normally get. If you don't like fish this is not the place for you, Snorkeling was good we saw several schools of fish and a sea spider and sea urchins

Such a cool bay lined up with restaurants in the sand. Great place to sit back and have a few beers and some great seafood.
