We went on a random “tour” from a Canadian lady named Lexie who happened to appear at our hostel while we were eating breakfast. It wasn’t a real tour because she was just trying to show her nephew around while keeping costs low, but she wants to start doing tours next year. Five of us shared a taxi so each person paid about ten dollars to get to the beach (plus a tip).
Food: At the far end of the beach Lexie went to her favorite fisherman and picked out red snapper or lobster for each of us. We were able to have a whole red snapper, cabbage, patacones/tostones (flattened and fried plantains), and rice for $10US. One girl got a lobster lunch for only $15 and after seeing it I was really jealous of her meal! We were all very satisfied at the end of our meal and ready to head home out of the sun.
Pro: Beautiful turquoise water, not many people there in the late morning, great food, and a gorgeous white sandy beach.
Con: Not much natural shade so you need to pay for an umbrella and chairs. In the afternoon there were many dune buggy tours.
