El Morrito or La Gamba ?

... on the beach behind the Park.

Has anyone been to 'both' — and is one any better than the other?

Ron, we spent a day at El Morrito last February and really enjoyed it. I think they were working on La Gamba then but it looked like another good spot.

El Morrito closes pretty early and would be more of an afternoon/lunch option. LaGamba would be better as a dinner destination. Both are good, but service at La Gamba can be hit or miss.

Morrito is good as it has local fame too, Meaning the locals would go so often if not good!

My friend told me of a new dish there and will ask again when they get into town::::

I think there's another eatery sandwiched between those two — the 'Coco Loco'; but I can't recall reading about anyone who's been there. I'm really not familiar with any of the three; I just know that they're there (and hope to check 'em out one day).

I have friends who go there (Coco Loco) every day and sun, they love it and guess if you want to drink you can BYOB with their refereshment/beer service etc. Snacks usually good special attentive service if the help shows up!!

Katalin goes I believe to Morritos daily just next door or Bocana beach (hope she won't mind I wrote that)??

but you'll usually run into a group of the same people that hang a each spot daily for their months or weeks vacation!!?

Coco Loco is a nice place to spend some hours by the beach - clean, friendly and reasonable. They have a splash pool you can use too.

As Steve noted, Coco Loco is another great spot. Spotless rest rooms and good food. Ron all three are near each other.
