This is a fun place to have a beverage, appetizer or ice cream. Nice central location & provides break from the heat or shopping.

Banditos is known for its great margaritas but it is also known for it's table side guacamole. However, you have to try their Shrimp in Love which is bacon wrapped with jalapeño. It is the best shrimp around Zihuantejo.
