Smallish Mexican beach town. Gets busy with Mexican nationals during Christmas, Easter and July and August. It's not fancy, has some mediocre hotels/motels. Anyone can use the Hotel Playa Azul pool and waterslides. Costs about 15 pesos for the day. Good backpacker destination.The attraction here is the long stretch of golden beach with spectacular sunsets. There are some good beachside restaurants and very little nightlife. But all in all is a sleepy town with very friendly people. The nearest town is Lazaro Cardenas, about 20 minutes away. From there you can catch first class buses to anywhere. There are combi vans running continuously throughout the day to Lazaro Cardenas. There is one ATM machine in Playa Azul, in the centre of town near the beach. This is new.There are lots of Federales in trucks keeping up the appearance of security/fighting the drug war which is rampant everywhere in Mexico right now.There are very few stray dogs and an effort is made to keep things clean.Fresh fish comes in daily on the little fishing boats.I wouldn't swim in the ocean. My son stepped on a ray and apparently there are lots of them and you can't see through the water. Also lots of undertows and rip tides. However that doesn't stop the surfing crowd.This is small beachtown Mexico, not a gringo tourist destination. That is what I like best about it.There is RV accomodation, too.
