I spent three days at Playa this November and loved every minute. La Ventana is a mecca for kite boarders from around the world and Playa Central is the place to go if you want to experience the thrill for yourself.

A great hang and becoming a La Ventana classic spot. Jessica's energy and lovely demeanor makes this always a fun spot to hang. She is super engaged in the community and has continuous events to make your visit fun. You would have to characterize the spot as "high energy"! Cold beer, lots of great food, especially the pizza and sandwiches.... More

Playa Central is a great place to hang out at night in La Ventana, especially if you're espanol is no bueno. They have good coffee (not an easy find), awesome pastries, and various events at night like open mike night. It's kind of a community center for visitors that serves great drinks and pizza while providing great service.
