Listen out for the local vendors, selling fresh fruits and vegetables, breads and ice cream.
La Colonia has several small taco stands serving delicious local fare. La Penita and Rincon de Guayabitos are just a short taxi or collectivo ride away, and have many great eating establishments ranging from inexpensive taco stands to fancy restaurants.
