“No playground!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Not a very nice beach! Also a current spring break magazine said it was an excellent beach for families especially because of the playground. We took an expensive cab ride there to find that there was no playground and hadn't been for years. The beach itself was dismal, littered and didn't seem like the cleanest place to swim with all the boats coming in and out of marina.

“Lots of changes!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

We visited La Playita for the first time several years ago. We go back every year to see the changes. This year showed the biggest change with a new hotel taking over most of the port. No longer a sleepy little fishing village!!
