“Lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

This is a lovely, clean beach and on the day we visited there was a market on. Bought a fantastic painting, although had to pay tax at the airport (3 Pesos). Traveled in an old American car there and back for a grand total of 6 Pesos each way!

“Great little market!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Was really nice and there were a number of venders that were very easy to bargain with, but there were also alot of pushy venders so beware of this, the beach was wonderfull and you can get alot of good deals there, was nice to be in town, but not alot of city life!

“Cartoonist at Bar La Rueda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

If you go to this beach stop and have a drink at the this bar and let Yoandi draw you in his unique cartoonist style. Very reasonable and a great unique souvenir. I think we paid 1 peso per person. Well worth it!

“nice from a distance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

I only saw this beach from a distance at the market in Guardalavaca, but it seemed to be quite sandy and nice. Didn't have time to swim there, but will go next time!

“Not worth the trip or lost time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Our resort allowed artisans to come in and set up. They changed up every day. Most of what we found on our resort was also found at the market at Guardalavaca. It felt less safe there, and less comfortable. Nice beach, but nothing too special from my experience.
