  • Tacky, low class tourism probably from Bogota, avoid this area. Nothing to see or worth doing. Nothing else to say really.

  • El Rodadero is a great beach. Its famous for many things, good and bad. When I visited I only saw the good, so I can only comment on that. Its a large beach that reminded me of Miami Beach back in the 1980's when things were affordable, families went for weekends, the vendors sold lots of useless things and the obnoxious, loud and irritating students had not arrived. If you're looking for a big beach experience this is it.
  • Nice beach. They’re working on the pathways to improve the environment. Lots of families enjoying their afternoon. Water is warm and the beach is clean. Come and enjoy.
