La Jaiba Feliz was our best find for breakfast on this trip, because it was affordable, family-friendly, and one block from the beach.
This spot has a lot of good breakfast choices, pancakes, eggs and ham, etc. as well as traditional lunch items like hamburgers and quesadillas. The omelets were good, as well as the fruit plate.
