Pretty place and has decent food but tourist trap

Pretty place with good food and drinks but the guys coming around every 5 mins trying to sell you stuff is annoying. I would recommend trying elsewhere more peaceful.

I had a day off from diving and took a taxi out here hoping for a lovely relaxing day on the beach. After paying $10 to enter I went onto the beach area. There were beer bottles and wine buckets from the night before lying around, and dirty baby nappies under the sun bed. Five staff were sitting around busy... More

We were dropped off here for lunch (from a dive operator), and unfortunately we chose the worst of the beach clubs to eat at -- high priced and very poor quality food, a crowded beach, many hawkers bothering you to buy purses or sunglasses, purchase photos with iguanas, etc. The bathrooms were not that clean, and the place looked more...

I was here with some other travelers and just along for the ride. As you can see by my other reviews, I'm a huge Isla Mujeres fan and after that, well.... not much else compares. Especially when they take a very naturally beautiful beach and put a bunch of floating "toys" in the water. Then they want an extra $10... More

Our original plan was to visit playa palancar but a taxi driver tricked us into going to San Francisco beach club. We paid 170 pesos for the taxi ride and he also got commission from the property. When we got there, it costed $10/person to get in. The property looked very depressing and the service was bad. We decide to... More

Though the beach was a little crowded, it was a great day. We paid $10 per person to get in, but got $8 coupons per perso to the bar and restaurant, which we used so it only cost us $2 to use the beach. It would have been nice if there were a few less people selling trinkets, but they... More

I've been going to san Fransisco beach for a long time. It is always so much fun and always has amazing service. The shops are great and you can always find a good deal. Totally recommend spending at least one day at San Fransisco beach!
