The beaches r practically deserted. Watchout for biting flies and sand fleas!

The beach is one of the best I've been to. It's totally unspoiled with resorts, tourists, and is pretty clean for being in a rather poor area. There are packs of wild dogs you have to watch out for if you don't want to be molested constantly, but not to worry as they are not mean. They just really want you to play fetch with them. All the time.

We loved spending time on this beach; the sand feels great, and the water was really warm (in May). Took great shots of surfers by the island which is few hundred feet from the beach.
I hear you can rent a home for $300 per month - by the beach! We only stayed for a weekend, our hotel was in Cahuita for $20 per night for small room, or $50 for a large studio, with kitchen, hot water and AC.

The beach is very beautiful. Watching the surfers was a lot of fun. However, this is not the beach to go to for snorkling.
