How's the beach? Seaweed? Smell??Crime?!!

Now that I have your attention...I'd just like to know what the beach is like at El Faro these days. I just booked a trip for the New Year week there and I haven't been since last March. I know it will change but I'm just trying to get an overall feeling for how it's been lately. When we were there in March there wasn't much beach at all.

TIA

On the beach now. No sargassum on south end. Beach is good. Not much up by el farro. A couple more cartel killings the other day I hear on 10th. We were close but didn't notice.

Thanks for the update. About what I’d expect. I actually changed my place and o stay. No sense paying el faro prices if the beach still sucks there. Centro it is.
