Walk to La Playita

We are staying at the Plaza Dorada. My fellow roommates just informed me that they were planning on getting up and walking in the mornings now. I remember a post on walking the beach to a breakfast at La Playita. How long will that take? And there was a mention of searching for glass or something along the way? Just where along the walk does one start looking and just ex-actually what kind of glass will I be looking for? I may have mixed this with another post if so I still would like to know about the time of the walk, etc.

Here's a link to experiences the daughter and I shared back in May '11. We did the walk from Los Muertos beach and return, several times during that stay. The route has been improved a little since then .. from what I've read, but even back then, it was quite fine.

It's a lovely area, small cove beaches, and so well-worth doing/experiencing.

Hi Wb, that was me who posted about the sea glass on our first walk to La Playita. Look near the rocks along the beach for the glass - its very small but colored usually blue, green, brown or white. You can tell what it is by the polished rounded edges as opposed to a little piece of rock. Here's a link to a picture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_glass

You'll start seeing the rocky areas as soon as you descend from the stair steps from the end of Los Muertos beach. Have fun!

I would say to allow half hour if you are looking for glass. 10 minutes on Los Muertos and 20 minutes in the coves.
