Take a cheap bus ride or a local palmonia to the end of the road near Cerritos and enjoy lunch at one of the authentic local restaurants. Do a little souvenir shopping. Check out the peaceful beach.

We stayed at the Riu and every morning would head out for some crazy waves and then a walk along the great sand to have some fresh oysters where the fishing boats come in. Its much more laid back than the Golden Zone but that is exactly what we wanted!

Great view, great view, and very special tequila at $20 bucks a bottle. We both had Dorado, and it was just right.

they were so nice - free drinks, free dessert... offered us a great deal on zip lining. One of the better meals we had on our trip.

This beach is near a stone cliff and excellent seafood restaurant. In the evening surfers are out and are fun to watch. Parking is usually convenient.

Nice beach and was quiet when we visited. Local transit goes there and there is a great restaurant on the beach.
