This used to be a fun place to go where you could enjoy the surfers and beach and a bowl of tortilla soup with a beer. The last few years, 2011 to date, it is another ordinary place where when you enter you run a gauntlet of craft or adventure sellers. Then wait in line for a table, wait for... More

It is excellent. You have to be patient as it takes some time to get your order. The fish is grilled whole and served whole. You... More

We always have to make our way down the beach from the Riu to explore around Playa Brujas. It's a short walk and the kids love climbing over the rocks, watching the surfers, and hunting for shells, crabs and snails. You can rent boogie boards and surf boards if you would like. And we can buy a beer. ;) Worth... More
