we are a group of 37 volunteers working in the Mayan villages outside of Tulum do you take reservations it would be for one night ...either April 10,11 or 12, 2017 - we usually eat about 6pm can you send a picture of the menu so we can get a feel for prices as we have to budget for each meal.. the team leader pays for food and soda and water - alcoholic beverages are the responsibility of the team members do you have a day that you are closed? thank you in advance for your help...
