We had the tostadas, tacos and a burger which were very tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Mezcal mojito was a good choice for a fresh cocktail! Definitely a good place for lunch.

We must have walked by El Huacalito dozens of times and had missed it, thinking it was part of a bigger, fancy hotel next door. It is connected to Casa Iguana and offers creative Mexican and Mayan food in a lovely setting at reasonable prices....More

Great location right in front of the beach. The staff are friendly and welcoming whether you are staying at Casa Iguana or walking in off the beach. Ceviche, margaritas, guac, and beer are all great! I am here now and have been several days in...More
