Fodor's Review

This beach abuts Playa Principal; the only thing separating the two is the sometimes malodorous freshwater Laguna de Agua Dulce created where Río Rigadillo meets the ocean. Popular among Mexican families, this beach can be very busy on weekends and during holidays, but the crowds can make for some fun people-watching. Expect to see vendors selling everything from ice cream to hammocks. Skiffs can be hired for fishing and turtle-seeking expeditions or you can hop on a water taxi to nearby beaches. Best bets for resto-bars include Brad's Split Coconut and Arcis near the Calle del Morro entrance. Amenities: lifeguards; food and drink; water sports. Best for: sunset; walking.
