Does anyone know about how early we need to get to Arashi to get one of the palapas?
No way to tell. Depends on the day. People come and go. We got one once. We go there almost every trip. Since they did the parking lot more people go there. I thought they might put some more out there. There is room for a dozen more. I noticed they put up a few more at Malmok, maybe they will at Arashi.
I agree with the above --- anytime after 9:15am you are chancing not getting one. On a weekend or holiday you get some locals and might want to aim for earlier. We always get there around 8:30 and have our pick. The chair rental guys usually start between 8:30 and 9:00am

Perfect, thanks everyone. We plan on taking the bus...maybe
never had problem
We usually get there early so no issue with the palapa. But sometimes the chair guy is late. . One day during our last vacation it was around 10 or 11 that he showed. He had car issues.
