Playa Bacocho

Playa Bacocho Review

High red cliffs serve as the backdrop for this beach west of town. It's ringed by upscale housing and hotel developments as well as some inviting bars, discos, and restaurants. Avoid swimming here. Although the waves aren't fierce, the rip currents are strong, especially along the east side of the bay. There aren't any lifeguards. For most visitors, Playa Bacocho is good for playing in the sand, long walks, and sunsets. Two beach clubs have restaurant and bar service, swimming pools, showers, and shade; access is about $5. Security guards on three-wheelers patrol during the day, but it's not recommended to walk on this lonely stretch of sand at night.
