It was weekend for our visit. It was full of locals having a good time with families. Nonetheless it was a great safe beach with fish swimming around. Good for snorkeling from shore.

Great beach, but the salesmen were aggressive. Only go on a planned excursion, the place did not feel safe.

Beautiful bay with clean sand and crystal clear waters, local vendors offer not only souvenirs but grilled seafood served to you with a Presidente beer obviously.
