One of the best seafood restaurants in Akumal and the area. Lovely setting, excellent seafood and a must if in Akumal.

La Cueva Del Pescador is a good spot for an amazing Mexican dinner, with the prices on food and drinks being quite reasonable. That being said it isn't really a party and nightlife type set up. Heading down to Playa Del... More
