El Morrito or La Gamba ?

... on the beach behind the Park.

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

Coco Loco is straight ahead of you if you go down the road to the right of Plaza Bahia (on the western side). The other places mentioned are in the same vicinity.

If I remember correctly, Coco Loco is about right next door to El Morrito; (walked that section of the beach last year and stopped for a drink at El Morrito).

Just went online at a different computer to make sure I know my passwords for TA and FB. Once you get at a computer in Aca the Spanish keyboard is enough of a challenge...letters rubbed off on the keys...and @ is hard to find (lol). Found about 2500 pesos left over from last trip and about $250 US (Canadian doesn't get the same respect in Mexico even though it's above par right now). Hope to see you all soon and we'll definately find El Morrito. Acasun, are you gonna be available some happy hour?

Those 3 places are no more then 100 feet from each other.


The multiple times we went to El morrito it was always busy for food and drinks. This was beach service mind you we were doing but that always gets my attention where the locals visit more.

Oh Acasun that is her usual spot!! I don't think she minds!! And Ron the cervesa is delivered in coolers when buckets run out!!
