Beautiful Beach, Friendly Locals, and amazing location for Yoga. I traveled here for 10 days a year ago, I can honestly say it was one of my most favorite beaches. If you are foodie you will not be let down. Prima, Chicken Joe's (the ceviche) , and the Bakery Were my favorites

There are no words to describe the beauty of this beach. The sunsets are to die for! The waves are perfect for surfing although the currents are strong! The surfers are gorgeous. The people here are the happiest people you will ever meet.

Absolutely fabulous beaches! The beach is long, lined with soft sand and palm trees. When we were there, the waves were strong enough for surfing but not so strong that you couldn't body surf and play around.

Great Place to see the sunset...We were treated to horses walking down the coast during the sunset. Loved it. GO TO BANANA BEACH to watch the sunset!

Great restaurants and places to shop. Roads are ragged but you get used to it. If you are a surfer, this is the place to be but you can be family oriented too.

A very chill beach town with much to offer. Although there are some good deals available, they are rather few... Most restaurants, products, services, hotels, etc are rather pricey.

Never over crowded. There's great surfing opportunities though if you're a beginner make sure you hit the tide times right, the waves change sizes relatively quickly. I love how close the vegetation was to the water and there are several restaurants right along the sand.
