We love the margaritas at Playa (probably too much). This is the best place to unwind after a day on the water. The pizzas are also great, and the view from the rooftop terrace is amazing.

Perfect location to have happy hour margaritas after a day of kiteboarding. They have a deck with a great view, and occasionally live music too. The pizza is good, and they have games
