Great little restaurant on the water with a relaxing view. Food was ok, service a bit slow but a great place to enjoy the marina and harbor. Clean bathrooms and the employee in the office where we bought our t shirts was outstanding.

This is our favorite place for breakfast. Serve yourself coffee from the bar, sit back and enjoy the view. The "typical" breakfast comes with gallo pinto (beans&rice) and corn tortillas. The fresh juices can't be beat - watermelon (sandia) is my pick.

You must buy the ticket one day, and it cannot be used until the following day. You CAN walk around and look at the shops but the actual buying pass cannot be used until the next day. Enjoy!
