I walked the half mile down here from the other end of the beach and boardwalk to find a Geocache hidden inside here. Found it! Lol. Jorge hooked me up. Got a cold one while here too. All good. Looks like a nice place.

We rented goggles and snorkel for $5. I don't know about kayaks, but you can email Steve the owner and ask, if they don't have them he could probably give you an idea of who does.

Mahahual’s premier ocean front dining experience. A unique cultural and culinary blend of the best of Mexico and the US. Our food, music and ambiance combine the tastes and flavors of both of these two wonderful countries. We are located on the Malecon right in the center of the downtown beachfront. We offer comfortable inside dining as well as tables in the sand, just a few steps from the beautiful clear Caribbean waters. Best food and conversation in town!
