We stayed at Yebo, just behind El Faro, and it was about a 15 minute walk to Nativo. Plus, the Mega store is right there so we combined trips, shopped and took a taxi back with our groceries.

La Cueva is a bit further but it is fun to walk up the beach to it. Just walk north till you get to the beach access north of Las Palapas and walk west a block.

We stay off Mamitas Bch on 32nd... EVERYDAY I walk down to the ferry, around the park and back twice in the morning and I'm 57yrs old and 50lbs overweight.

La Cueva del Chango is just 2-3 blks north of us on 38th.

Its really not that bad of a walk plus you get to walk off some of the 2000+ calories you just had.

Al, is that an off-season price or will they be running those prices in January? Sounds great.

For me, nothing beats breakfast on the beach. I really dont want to go "in town" to have my breakfast when I can have it with my toes in the sand, looking out at the sunrise over the Caribbean.

I would guess that thoise prices are "off season" pricing. And hopefully for those locals that eat there 5 times a week .

And where might one enjoy a good breakfast with their toes in the sand?

I don't think I've ever eaten breakfast on the beach in Playa

So many good breakfast choices in Playa; my three favorites from this trip were Carbonicitos, Vagabunda, and John Gray's.

100% Natural. Just had breakfast there yesterday and everything was yummy. Try and sit by street though b/c the mosquitos are everywhere.

Yes, John Gray's was awesome! The service, the food, the ambiance. All was just perfect. I think most people think of this place as a fancy shmancy dinner place (which it is) and do not think about breakfast. But is a must! I agree with the other choices as well, but of course i have to add in the conchinita pibil tortas at the carts as my all time fav!
