Margaritas and Beer!!

A great pit stop on our little scooter tour around the island. We opted not to visit their nude beach, lol, but the staff was super friendly and adorable.

Wonderful beach. Fun little bar. Be sure to play the ring-toss. This place has been here for ages, and it's a great stopping place if you're driving the back-side of the island.

If you're renting a car or scooter to drive around the island, this is a great location to stop for a drink or a rest. There a few shops if you're looking for the typical tourist souvenirs and a nice beach. There was even a naked beach if that's your thing. It was a bit chilly so nobody was really... More

Rode a bike to the other side of the island, made a stop here to cool off. Staff was nice and attentive. Had a couple of cokes and fries, very good. It was nice to look at the ocean waves from the table and relax. Bathrooms were out back but clean and did had soap too.

We swing by most every trip. Cool little bar with a great view. The guys there are not overly friendly but they are usually efficient. The margaritas, while decently strong, are mostly tasteless marg mix and tequila. The food is decent beach fare, you won't go hungry, but not impressive either. Prices are moderate to high for the quality. Overall,... More

We love to stop at Mezcalitos on the back side of the island to have a few drinks and take in the awesome views of the rougher side of the island. Waves crashing onto the beach can be very soothing to the sole. Mezcalitos is a very friendly place to just hang out and enjoy yourself for a few hours.... More

it's a $50 roundtrip taxi so make a day of it. Its right beside Chen Rio and within walking of Coconuts Cliff Bar. Be sure to make arrangements for a taxi to take you back!

We just returned from Cozumel. We rented a car and toured the Island. It was a beautiful, quiet morning at Mezcalitos. Our friends have been coming here for years and wanted to share this place with us! It was just like stepping back to a simpler time! The staff was helpful, but not pushy! We just had a couple of...
