Plenty of dining options at all prices. A lovely evening walk along the paved path that lines the coast. We also purchased some local crafts from artist set up there. Very pleasant.

You can either begin or end your day trip or visit with a stroll through the Malecon de la Esperanza. Day or night is an area where you will see local action in the many restaurants, food kiosks and souvenir shops.

there are various guest houses here and cafes, restaurants and bars. The night life is here and also you can buy the bio bay tours around there. The walk is quite beautiful around here.

If staying in Esperanza this is the main area. There are plenty of places to snack, drink, and eat. We tried a bunch of different places and had lots of fun. There are also vendors selling a few trinkets.

Great place to end the night after the beach all day. If going with a family with small kids it is ok but mostly adults around. Great place for photos!
