Reviewed 1 May 2013

Beautiful beach, but, very crowded... not as large as some others...
Lots of trailers pulling up filled with people, making it a very busy beach...
Off to the next one for me...

“Overrated”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

The beach is nice but it's mostly for those staying at the hotel right there. There is a large market of locals selling things at tourist rates (nearly 2-3x the price of other markets in the area). The swimming is not very good due to the weird current.

“Great little cove and beach!”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

We stayed at the Tesoro and the beach was the best part. Just great. Snorkeling VERY good along the right side of the cove facing the ocean. Make sure you snorkel not only along the rocks but out toward the boats and look for the large rocks, lots of fish!! We saw lobsters, octopus, moray eel, spotted sea snakes, tons of rays and dozens of species of fish. Clear, warm water.

Good service. Good food. Many Mexican dishes worth trying. On the main road and available. Loved the variety of dishes as well as the Mexican typical fare.

Reviewed 7 December 2012

It's the site where spanish conquistadors first reached land and now, full of tourists is still a site to enjoy, you can board a day cruise or catamaran or just relax.
