I can't say enough about La Playa. First of all you can't beat sitting on the sand watching the ocean while eating. I have seen surfers, I have seen a whale and sometimes just the pelicans.
Everything I ever had here is great. I love the shrimp tacos for a light meal and the carne assada for a big one. My husband loved the burger, my friends loved the ceviche.
Friendly staff.
It is the southern-most restaurant - on your left as you face the ocean.

Spend the whole day here sitting on the beach. We ordered beers and few drinks along with a few different snacks. Everything we tried was good. The service was great. The guys were always coming around checking to see if we needed anything.

we spent the afternoon on the san Pancho beach in town. Hansel set up 2 chaises, a table and umbrella for us, kept the cold ones coming! We ordered the Big Beach Burrito and it was enough to share. We were entertained by the surfers, dogs and swimmers. The water is fabulous....warm and fun to body surf in.
