I am not a seafood eater in most occasions. But my friends had me try a few things and before I knew it, I was eating anything they served. It was the best I've ever had and can't wait to go back. So fresh and...More

Great stop for dinner. Puerto Morelos is a fishing village so the fish is fresh and very tasty. I had the grilled pepper fish and it was lovely. Worth a try.

We dropped in for a drink and ended up staying for the meal. We watched The Catch of the Day come in off of the boats and we're so tempted to buy the lobster, but instead enjoyed an excellent shrimp cocktail and a fried fillet...More

We had the lobster it was delicious! They brought lobster tails to the table and let us choose which one we wanted. It was cooked perfectly!

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
