I was pleasantly surprised. The water isn't like the Caribbean, but better than many of the US east coast beaches. Yes, there are locals and they are selling their goods, but it is their country/town and they are earning a living. How could you possibly fault them for that?? And they are very kind people - just tell them no... More

Nice sandy swimmable beach but there happened to be a red tide while we were there so the water seemed very murky

Beautiful. Bath water temps. Tons of things to do inexpensively. Don't be afraid to barter or use American $. Parasailing or massage was $20. Seedooing was $30 for half hour. Kayaking was $6 for half hour. Fun times and good restaurants on beach.

Lots of venders and the restaurants charge about $50 pesos for chairs and an umbrella. Totally worth it. A great place to swim and relax. There are vendors pushing water sports, but they don't harass you. Also vendors walking along the beach. I don't mind that sort of thing, but others might.

We were here just before the Easter holidays for two weeks and pretty much had the beach to ourselves during the week. The weekends were busy with loads of families and young people, even with the beach being full there was a great energy. The water is clear and calm, great for swimming and water sports. The beach is great... More

The beach is incredible. Read under a palapa, walk into the gentle line of breakers and float to my heart's content.

Restaurants and beach service are fun, but not all one of the best beaches I have been to. Average or a tad better than average, but SUPER crowded with locals and tourists.
