We went on a Monday afternoon...had a great time just hanging out. Right on the beach. Comfortable in the afternoon shade. Guys at the bar were nice. No frozen drinks so no virgin drinks for the kids ...might have been just a Monday thing-not sure....More

Every year this dive doesn't disappoint! Great lunch while you are at the beach. Set up your umbrella close by because you will want to keep going back for the yummy turbo pina coladas! Ceviche was very fresh - good choice!
