Fodor's Review

In a small hotel in Isla Verde the laid-back, beachy La Playita is famous for its burgers and mofongo with various fillings. Their menu also features a local catch of the day and more creative dishes like mahimahi in a mango-chipotle sauce. All of the seating is outdoors; you can choose the deck and look out for manatees and sea turtles, or relax in a covered section near the bar, where you can try their signature passion-fruit mojitos, or their staple, the Coco Loco,

a piña colada served inside a fresh cocount. The crowd is a fun mix of locals and tourists who have wandered over from nearby hotels to enjoy the breathtaking views. The service can be slow and the hotel needs a bit of a face lift.
