I think that they had my favorite pina colado and strawberry margarita that I had during our trip. The vegetarian taco was also very good.

We had a lovely dinner after dark here. A security guard pointed us into a parking space, and the short path to the restaurant was lined with small lights. Open-air seating in a lovely, quiet setting off the dusty main road. Great food and attentive...More

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table. An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views. Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
