Beach was nice for walking, picking shells, and catching the sunrise & sunsets! There was no shortage of locals selling their wares. Always friendly and not a bother after being told No Thank you.

This is a Nice beach, not very crowded which we loved. My kids played some football just before having dinner at El Sueno across the street. Very Clean and friendly locals. The beach walks are were great and there are many beach bars in this area as well. Great area for riding a bike.

Free running cats, dogs and motorcycle! People try to sell you stuff and excursion every 2 minutes. Visible prostitution and begging. Did not feel safe at night. A few restaurants and bars, very basic but expensive.
