“Nice day trip.”
Review of Guardalavaca Beach

Reviewed March 27, 2012

Took the bus to Guardalavaca and shopped at the tourist market and spent some time at the beach. Had a nice shrimp lunch at the beach restaurant. My son got to help some locals with their beautiful wood carvings. It is a nice chance to interact with locals.

We went twice, once on the bus and again by vintage chevrolet bel air, 12 cuc each way.
A good craft market, stall holders not to pushy and a nice beach, although it did get deep quickly. 2-3 hours is proberly enough for shopping, a walk or swim on the beach and a drink in one of the beach bars. Dont use the beach toilets unless your tetinus is up to date!
