We went for a quick dinner after dark. This place is definitely a locals hangout. Super friendly folks here. Ceviche and the beef Casado were good. Great spot for casual beer and food. Nice bar dog also!

If it is a clear day. Hit La Puesta Del Sol for some ice cold Imperials and the sunset. Do not be imtimidated if you only see locals hanging out, this is where you want to be. On the beach just outside of Los Suenos.

We wanted a casual, beachfront place with great fish and no attitude. This was it! The bartender was friendly but not pushy. The two of us shared a large ceviche with avocado, a whole Red Snapper with salad and fries, Imperial beer and a soda....More

It is about one mike. Too hot to walk, in my opinion. Taxi would be about $4. It is safe there but crowded with locals on the beach on weekends.
