I’d seen on numerous reviews that we could book fishing via our waiter so I convinced my hubby we should do it. He loves to fish and hasn’t in so long since he’s started a business 2 years ago. Where else can you get guided...More

Very nice place to eat before or after going to the beach. We had a shrimp taco (3 pcs) and a fajita with fish, both delicious. We ordered 2 cokes and a bottle of water and paid 315 in total (tip not included). Expect some...More
