Lots of Sand

Good place to spend the afternoon. Non pushy vendors. Lots of places to choose from to eat. Good prices, good food, good icy cold drinks.

wonderful beach with very little waves. very safe and calm water. you may be served food and drink right down on the water's edge from several palapa restaurants. Can't comment on the food. We just went swimming and enjoyed watching all the locals enjoying a day at la playa with their families.

Mi amiga spent three months hanging out surfing at Mantanchen thirty years ago, and was horrified at how commercial it had become so we headed over to Borrego. WIDE beach - 1/8 mile over hot sand to the water - bring your sandals or stand on your board several times to get to the water. Great ramadas with good food... More

During the week it's quite crowded...but on Sunday, it's Mexico come alive...food is good, beer is cold, surfing can be mediocre to good...but seriously, Sundays are a circus...especially over the feast of San Blas time frame 3 February...

Swim and take in the sun then dine at one of the many ramada's. Inexpensive. There are vendors who sell things on the beach, but they are subdued by Puerto Vallarta standards.

View is incredible. Beaches are empty, cabanas have great food. It is an easy walk from town.
