Fodor's Review

Two blocks north of the town square, this "restaurant" is actually made up of plastic tables and chairs shaded by mini palapas and tarps. What it lacks in charm is more than made up for by the food and prices. La Playita is where locals go for seafood soup, fried fish, shrimp tacos, ceviche, and fresh guacamole—but plan to either practice your Spanish or use sign language because this family-run business focuses more on quality cooking than customer service. You should plan to eat early, too, as it closes at 8. La Playita is the perfect place to sink your toes in the sand and enjoy a refreshing rice-milk horchata.
