Zoco Negro Reviews & Ratings
Nice village on the Atlantic shore. The place is free from crowds of tourists, so if you are looking for quite and visited mostly by locals place, this is it! Plenty bars and restaurants around, so you can find something you like. There are few places to swim and to get tan for sure. I recommend this place to all looking for local taste.
Really nice walk around the beach, lovely statues when walking around.
Beautiful beach. Especially lovely when the low tide is there. Take your snorkelling googls and go look at that beautiful underwater life (colourful fishes, different bottom textures etc). When high tide hits, there is not much coast line left, you can still swim but really nowhere to lay or sunbathe. There is sand and rocks. Also rockpools, what are nice for small kids to play in.
The low tide beach is nice but the real attraction for me is the pool - snorkeling here was amazing! I wouldn't have thought that many animals would be willing to live in such close contact with people since it has a man-made rock barrier to calm the waves and lots of people swim there but there are a wide variety of fish, sea slugs, sea cucumbers, urchins, and probably more. I could happily spend several days just snorkeling here.
Nice place for a walk.
