Visual studio can't debug Android Xamarin app

I've started with Xamarin and Android using Visual Studio 2013.

When I start debugging the android app, it builds, deploys to device and then debugging in Visual Studio stops. I can't hit any breakpoint. App is working in device, but I cannot debug it.
Am I missing something?
I've tried various emulators and a physical android device but debugging doesn't work in any of them. It just act like I have stopped it.

Debugging the same solution in Xamarin Studio works, I just can't get it working in Visual Studio.

Answer

Make sure you are running on Debug mode (on target).

Then, check the Properties of the App Project and see if it's using the Xamarin debugger instead of the VisualStudio Debugger.
