This is one of the highlights of the local area. Make time to walk the beautiful walkway around the marina. Eat at the Drunken Sailor. Time it so you see the catch of the day coming into the filleting station, around 12-2. And you will have a perfect day. Or go later and watch a spectacular sunset from the beach! Perfect.

I visited this beach twice. Once right after sunset and once very early in the morning, around 8am. Both were pretty good. Quiet and relaxing. I don't know if it gets busy later in the day. You just see fishermen here early in the morning. There is a good view of the giant cross from here if you are into photography. Great for night shots especially!

This is a great little town just outside of San Jose del Cabo. Not fancy or elegant; typical old Mexico. The Marina is relatively new and the fishing is great from there as the boats can get to the "Gorda Banks" in just a few minutes. Dont line up fishing trips in advance or through the hotel or travel agent; go the the marina and negotiate directly with the captain of the boats. You eliminate the middel man and they are less expensive. Additionally, you can see the boat, ammenities, and how well you communicate with "El Capitan". Personally I like the smaller "Super Pangas" for just 2 people. Make sure they have a fighting chair, outriggers, ice box, rod belts, live bait wells and sun shade canopies. You can also negotiate into the price the bait and beer.
There are a few small restaurants close to the marina which we had a wonderful lunche of traditional mexican food. Everything fresh and from scratch; even the tortillas and salsas. Did not go to the beach or stay in the local hotel.

In comparision with other beaches we´ve been before in Los Cabos (Santa Maria, Las Viudas, Chilleno bay), La Playita is quite dirty and too big with too many people. However, there is a coco frío stand:-)
