If it is a clear day. Hit La Puesta Del Sol for some ice cold Imperials and the sunset. Do not be imtimidated if you only see locals hanging out, this is where you want to be. On the beach just outside of Los Suenos.

It started rains no so we headed to Herradura. Spent the afternoon sitting at the bar watching it rain. Beers were ice cold. We also tried the ceviche...best we've ever had! Apperently it's a family recipe. Love the sassy Jersey girl behind the bar!! :-)

Being from NJ, we're accustomed to a certain standard of service. This restaurant did not disappoint. From the minute our group ordered drinks, we were welcomed like old friends. The ceviche was hands down some of the best I've had; with large pieces of fish...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is the restaurant within walking distance from the Marriott? How is the safety in the area; would we want to walk there during the day and/or after dark?

It is about one mike. Too hot to walk, in my opinion. Taxi would be about $4. It is safe there but crowded with locals on the beach on weekends.
