This is not a populated beach when we were there. It is beautiful and has a lot of dogs. Local people are very nice and sells some fresh coconut that I really love.

Coco Loco has amazing food and sits right in the beach. It's the best food we had during our stay at Playa Flamingo.

You are right on the beach at this restaurant so it is a great place for drinks at sunset followed by dinner. The tables are not quite level as you sit at a slight incline towards the water which is important to note if this...More

Call it fusion, different, innovative, or whatever you want; right on the beach, great service, great food, great atmospheres. We were a group of 8, including grandchildren, and we all enjoyed it.

Amazing beach sunset views with some of the best fresh food with great service. Hidden gem! Most fresh fish dishes are caught that day nearby. Even locals love to enjoy this low key amazing spot with decent prices! You won't be disappointed.
