great beach, nice location but very busy over the Christmas holidays. Water was great especially when the wind was not coming out of the north or northeast.

... far too many people. Water is ok, but don't let yourself be tempted by what your travel guide says. There are by far better beaches!

The beach was beautiful flat, clear with white sand. OK, most of the women (Europeans?) swim with no bras or tops. Which is fine with me, but if you have little ones...well.....There are... More

Playa Norte is the cleanest most beautiful beach I have been on. Sand, sunshine, crystal clear turquoise waters. Great for swimming, sunning or people watching. No glass or animals. cocktails in plastic only, it is a beach!

This beach's appearance definitely lived up to our expectations. Yet the first time we went was at time when it was so crowded which was a little unfortunate. We went again the morning before we left and there was barely anyone there which was very enjoyable. If you want to beat the crowds I would suggest going in the morning... More
