Rent a car and treat yourself to the otherside of the island which is pretty underdeveloped. Playa Chen Rio is a wide sandy beach. Check out the tidal pools on northern part of the beach.

This is one of the many scenic beaches along side the only highway on the island. Very easy to pull over and park and go down to the long beach for a scenic walk.

Went out here for lunch after a morning of diving. The ultimate in laid back. Had the lunch fried fish and a beer took a nap and watched the scenery from my table with my toes in the sand. Relaxed all afternoon.

This beach area was beautiful but small. Sand was cool to the feet. There was trash in a lot of places but that was probably from the storm that swept through on the prior night. It has a restaurant close by in which we ate...More
