Playa Caletone,Playa Grande,Playa Diamente Blue Lagoon

I have been offered a trip by Five Star which includes the above beaches and also Rio San Juan and the Blue Lagoon.

I have added these destinations as a search on this site and nothing has shown up.

Has anyone any feedback on these beaches or trips with Five Star? I know nothing of this area at all.

Thanks

Hi Lorraine,

Many people have now used Fivestar but here is a link where you might find some info from previous customers of theirs.

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g147290-i64-k311…

Those are someof the most beautiful beaches on the north coast, have you tried doing a google to find more info.

You can't go wrong either with 5 star or the places you have picked. Bring your snorkle gear to Caleton and have lunch on the beach at Play Grande or Caleton.

Hi BObk,

Can you recommend any particular restaurants on either of those two beaches? What would we expect to pay for a say a two course lunch and maybe a beer.

Don't have any peso's only $US at the moment.

There are no restaurants but rather shacks run by the beach vendors. Your "chair" guy will make the arrangements for you (we use Danny at Playa Caleton). They will set up your beach chairs and umbrellas. Then ask if you want lunch. If so they occasionaly will bring a menu or rather just tell you what they have. Danny actually brings a platter of fish and you pick yours out. They will then set up an table and chairs at lunch time under the trees (caleton) or palms (Playa grande) and serve a very good meal.

Very laid back and good food.

Yes they will take dollars, but you will get a better price if using pesos.
