Had lunch here after finishing our flamingo boat tour. The place is pretty basic and has a nice view on the beach. The food is average and pricey. Staff were friendly though.

Beware, they work with two menus. Both in Spanish, but one for the tourists adding 10-20% to the Mexican menu prices!!! Food is good though.

La Playita was recommended by a local. It's on the beach, we sat a table where we could dig our feet into the sand, very nice location. But the fried plantains were greasy, the breaded shrimp was overcooked and so was my husband's grilled fillet....More
