The ceviche is a great as everyone says. Love hitting this place for lunch. The light at night is not very flattering but the ceviche and whole fish make up for it.

We had an excellent mixed ceviche meal! Very local place with good service. Everything was fresh and great flavor! Not touristy at all.

Great fish tacos. Everyone is served a huge plate of nacho chips, fresh salsa and refrained beans gratis. My taco pescado was 80 pesos for 3 including a nice guacamole. Worth a visit. On Main Street Tulum at the south edge of town.

El Camello is the seafood spot in Tulum! Their ceviche's are to die for! This place was recommended to us by locals. For those seafood lovers, you must stop by when in Tulum.

This place is definitely worth a visit! They give you huge portions, the prices are incredibly cheap and the food tastes fantastic. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is because it's in a bit of a sketchy location and it's not the most sanitary of eating conditions (i.e. flies everywhere, dirty tables, no A/C).
