The sailing ships would anchor, I expect , and send a dinghy ashore.
La Entrada has that history, from what I know.
Patrick made it look easy.... the food was always excellent.
but if you noticed, he knew exactly when to appear in the kitchen to guarantee the meal's perfection.
He slipped away for a minute.... the most important minute in the process.
has anybody been there yet ? do they have a website? do the local fishing boats still use the beach to store their boats and go out fishing?
for derfish its right before you reach rio san juan off of hwy 5
has anybody been to the old los gringos on playa magnate? I heard it had reopened under another name. does anyone know the new name and how to get in contact with the new business? is the restaurant stillopen? do the fisherman still gout of there to catch fish?
Stayed for one night last week. Michel the new French owner is doing a good job. Food is good. Not cheap, but not expensive.
We rented the kingsize cabin and he put in extra beds for our kids. 4,000 pesos a night. The beach is gorgeous and tranquil.
The only criticism I have would be the bugs. During the day there are those tiny little millimeter sized black bugs that pack a real wallop when they bite and at night there were a lot of mosquitos. So if you go, take plenty of repellent.
They have a party on Tuesday nights for a group from the Bahia Principe hotel. It was a great atmosphere, the clientele appeared to be mostly French/French (as opposed to French/Canadian)
