A buddy and I dropped in here for a couple of cervezas and a little snack. Great friendly staff. Outstanding shrimp cocktail. Cold beer. Beautiful view. Dirt cheap. Worth it!

Good for photo ops, browsing in a few shops, lunch/dinner on the beach. Don't miss the fish tacos. We enjoyed La Cabana, El Dorado and El Coral restaurants.
