La Playita

La Playita Review

Two blocks north of the town square, this "restaurant" is actually made up of plastic tables and chairs shaded by mismatched tarps and umbrellas. What it lacks in charm is more than made up for by the food and prices. This is where locals go for seafood soup, fried fish, shrimp tacos, ceviche, and fresh guacamole. Entrees come with a side of rice and shredded lettuce, but plan to either practice your Spanish or use sign language since this family-run business focuses more on quality cooking than it does on customer service. This is the perfect place to sink your toes in the sand and enjoy a refreshing rice-milk horchata. Just watch out for the mosquitoes at dusk, and eat early because the restaurant closes by 8.
