We really enjoyed dinner here. You can grab a drink at the sandy floor bar while you wait for a table (didn't take long). Hand crafted cocktails. The food was excellent. We particularly loved the mixed seafood ceviche and octopus (pulpo) main dish.

I came here for lunch with my family and we had a great time. I ordered the ceviche mixto and it was super yummy! They have traditional Mexican food so there’s a good selection of dishes. I would go back

Enjoyed two lunches and a supper here. Delicious ceviche! Shrimp rolls in Chaya were super. Fried fish and flank steak were perfectly done. Have the grilled vegetables, they are very tasty!!

Very welcoming and friendly, bar and outdoor dining area are well designed, food was delicious, we had Guacamole, Campaneros Zapata and Tacos, the drinks were tasty but could be stronger 😜

This is our third visit to Isla Holbox and we always make a point of having lunch at Viva Zapata; once again, it did not disappoint. It is nothing flash but the staff are friendly and the food is always fresh and tasty. Even though...More
