“Navíos is a somewhat upscale restaurant located right on the lagoon. And when I say on the lagoon I mean on it! Like literally, the whole restaurant is set on a set of beautiful palapas which sit out on the water and are interconnected with wooden bridges. The views are spectacular (at sunset in particular) and the food is nothing short of amazing!”

Seafood Restaurant
$$$
“This is one of my favorite places to eat some food and have some beers or margaritas! This is a good all around surf and turf kind of place that has everything from shrimp tacos, to burgers with excellent guacamole. The most budget friendly and tasty menu item here is definitely the Tuna Tostadas coming in hot at only $39 pesos each. Beers are $35 pesos each. You can use a credit card or cash but the servers can sometimes be pushy about tips. Standard tip for restaurants here is usually 10-15% if the service was good. ”
