The beach and surroundings are breathtaking. We were there over the New Year's holiday and there were a lot of local families there, but still plenty of space, not incredibly packed. The water is clear with the exception of the occasional plastic grocery bag floating by. Very small waves and little current making it a great for swimming. We had a condo toward the furthest southern end of the beach. Restaurants there will let you use there lawn chairs as long as you are a patron. Others, like outside LaPerla, want around $5.00 usd to rent their chair and a beach umbrella. Beer is cheap..maybe 2.00 USD. Of course, they have wonderful tropical drinks, guacamole and chips, ceviche, etc... at most of the restaurants at reasonable prices. There were many vendors passing buy, including musicians. No one was pushy or insistent, but it was a pretty steady stream of people peddling snacks, cheap jewelry, etc. Be cautious of the $20 massages you hear about. Some people are trained and talented, others are much less experienced and you may be disappointed. Overall, worth a trip.
