La Playa used to be a sleepy little fishing village until the scourge of development thought it would be a good idea to build a huge marina which destroyed the ecology of the estuary that separates San Jose from La Playa.

The La Playita Hotel has been renamed La Marina and has seen a slight improvement as it now has a small restaurant in the courtyard.

Some of the local sights...

One of the concessions made when building the marina was to establish several fish-cleaning stations which were rather impressive..

Each of these buildings had marble tables that served as cleaning stations. Commercial plastic cutting boards, spray hoses, and drains made for efficiency....and the fishermen maintained the areas well...

These buildings were well made and attractive...

A small bit of beach had been retained and was being enjoyed by some locals...

The area was kept fairly clean by these hungry Basuraderos...
