Is any of these beach clubs appropriate for kids/family vacation??
Yes many beach clubs are good for children. We would recommend Wah Wah because there is a casual atmosphere and large beach for the kids to play. This beach is by second street.
Can you bring coolers to any of the beach clubs ? Or is it prohibited.
Most beach clubs do not allow you to bring outside drinks because they expect to sell you them in exchange for a free chair to use or subsidized rental price.
Hello, what’s a nice beach club for a couple in their late twenties that’s more so relaxed and laid back, trying to go on the opposite feel of Mamitas
We would say Inti Beach. It is chill with nice music and food plus much smaller than Mamitas Beach Club.
Hi. We like to do a little farewell party in a beachclub for around 10people the 20th or 21st of November 2019. Doesnt need to be fancy but it has to have music. Can you recommend a place. Thx
Inti Beach could be a good place. It is more intimate and a good place to have a party. The music, you can talk to them about options or just use the provided music.
