“Not really worth a visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

We took a taxi from Hotel Paradisus Rio de Oro to see what Guardalavaca had to offer. We walked round the market, crossed the beach 50:50 sand and cigarette ends; walked through the Club Amigo and went straight back to our hotel.

“Well worth the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Market is great with many options of things to buy, beach was beautiful. We took a lot of items to give away to locals and this was the perfect place to give them out. There were 2 little boys playing with beer cans and we gave them a pail and shovel each they were so excited well worth it. My son and his girlfriend took the horse and cart backto the resort and loved the long slow ride back! Bring lots of sunscreen as it was extremly hot at the market.

“Nice day trip.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 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.
