It is quite a walk on a hot day from the highway, where we were dropped off. Had lunch at a small restaurant, before we walked through the arches to the beach. Great food and affordable. The beach was crowded. We did not check out the bars as we were there to snorkel. the snorkelling was good, but it was also just as good at our resort. The shopping looked great. Lots of little stands. Wish I had done my shopping there instead of Playa Del Carmen. We were there on a hot day, very little shade. Went for a walk with my son along the north (rocky) beach. Came across some abandoned condos. It was nice enough, but I do not highly recommend it.
