Nice to get off the cruise ship, we rented a golf cart and went to the far end of town.. Enjoyed lovely guacamole and fish Tacos, extremely hospitable staff and a lovely sea view.

We detoured from our original plan and by suggestion stopped into Machos and it was AMAZING! The owner is from Texas and we enjoyed some good conversation and an even better fresh snapper on the grill. It was a great afternoon with refreshing drinks.

WOW what a place. the seafood was fantastic, the drinks very good. We took our time, had a few drinks, took a dip in the ocean, then had our meal. We had smoked fish fresh from the sea. How much better can this get.

I grew at the Yucatan Peninsula having frequently Tikinxik style fish, it has to be prepared in an oven, at Macho the prepare it grilled but it is done perfectly. Just this dish is reason enough to visit the place but some others are great too.

The bar is right next to the Fisherman's Dock just out of the busy part of town. Kiko, the owner, was great. The margaritas were freshly made and for lunch Kiko cooked up Lobster, conch, shrimp and fish that was remarkable. Hot sauce was excellent. Prices were good especially compared to in town with some of the rip-off places like... More

We slept there for a night. Since all private rooms where busy, the boy who attended us offered us to pay 400$MXN to rent the whole dorm room. They had to expulse the drunk cook that was sleeping there, the guy was pissed off, yelling in the hostal. The room looked like it had not been clean for weeks, the... More
