We had a solid "tipico" lunch after a morning mangrove tour, including excellent plantains. The fruit tea was sweet and refreshing. The restaurant is attached to a motel, and is simple, open-air setting.

Had a good reasonably priced lunch here. Friendly service. Nice local food. I would recommend this place. You eat under a roof with no walls, so it is hot.
