Great beach! Was glad that I didn't do the snorkeling as was told by others that the designated area for this had alot of broken glass. Many people from our group came back with cuts from the glass.

Friendly staff and quick to reply to my questions. For the price, it's a deal. As far as the meal goes, it was a fresh catch and filling! Jose was nice and ready to take our order for any additional drinks and/or snacks.

The tour went about as expected. We got a text about hotel pick-up, which was well on time. I'd recommend this tour if you're looking to visit Playa Blanca on a budget. Jose, our tour guide, was very helpful during the course of the tour.
