Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach is now clean and beautiful. You can rent one of the few day palapas for $45 per person. That comes with a food/credit credit. We ordered 2 margaritas. $26!! Very expensive for Cabo. No chips and salsa. Come for the beach and bring your own drinks.

The wife and I went there the last day we were in Los Cabos on this trip. Lots of birds, clean beach, no current, parking, banos...just south of the marina. Totally worth the visit.

Very nice beautiful beach. Very quiet, not too much foot traffic. There is a restuarant/bar located there for the hotel across the waterway. We only got a couple of drinks which were food. They did have chaise lounges but we didn't ask to see if we could rent them or if they were only for the hotel guests

This beach is off the busy tourist strip which makes for a refreshing change. We were there around noon so we ended up seeing the fish being brought in and cleaned fro the private fishing tours.

We rented a small beach house just 300 yards up the dunes from T's beach bar for 12 days. The village of La Playita is quaint and not touristy at all. Very nice marina area. The swimming areas are small and not really part of the long walkable beach areas. The stretch of beach which runs up from the gravel parking area towards the rest of the East Cape is in tough shape for the first half mile or so. There was some storm damage from the last rainy season. The end of the street just next to us was washed out with exposed drain pipes visible from the beach. Lots of wash outs with chunks of debris and trash visible along this area as well. The sand is a dark almost black colored sand (and to us not very pretty) along this stretch. We had a rental car and the location was a nice base camp to explore from. Lots of beautiful beaches in the area, this just wasn't one of them. (In our opinion)
There had been some bad drug cartel events right in this sleepy little village just prior to our stay which made us a bit uneasy, but that is an entirely different topic.
Over all we enjoyed La Playita. It was nice being close to San Jose Del Cabo, but not be right in the tourist area.

This is a great place to go hang out for a day and sit on the beach and watch the fisherman come in and see what they bring. Or it is also an easy place to come down in the morning and charter a Panga & go out & fish your self. Great Place!!
