The engineering and the beautiful view with close proximity to the shops and bars. We met many other tourists who were also really happy.

The beach at los Muertos is very nice. As you stroll along the Malecon find a table at one of the restaurants, have a margarita and snack. You'll feel relaxed and refreshed. It's hard to beat.

Nice swimming at the beach. What I disliked was seeing so many hard working people just trying to survive selling things for tourists.

This beach is pretty, used by locals and tourists alike, convenient to restaurants and shops. Good swimming. However, there is a very steady stream of vendors seeking a sale.
