5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great break, can be tough to get back out if the swell is running close together. Just a few friendly locals.

Interesting walk through the alligator/crocodile/,iguana preserve but the street vendors make it an unpleasant visit while trying to escape the throngs.

I'd hate to have to spend a week on this side of the beach. Stay in the Hotel Zone.
