Fun atmosphere. Live music most nights. Good drinks and food. Enjoyed quesadillas and fresh fish. Perfect location to get a drink.

We've been to the Palapa Bar & Grill twice this week. It's a fun place right on the water with reasonably priced food and drinks and great music (John Stanley this week). The grilled lobster, lobster ceviche, and ribs are excellent.

Great prices, better service, and fantastic lobster. Three dinners we had at Palapa and it got better each time. Dont let your 12 read the bathroom walls.

You can eat, drink, stay in the water, jump into the water, stay all the time you wanted, drink your beer with the feet on the see, or looking by the window without windows… Excelent place, average prices!

I traveled to San Pedro with my friend and we stopped here for a beer one afternoon. Such a fun place to sunbathe, drink buckets of beer and watch the boats come and go. We went back several times during our stay! Fantastic friendly staff!...More

Pretty cool spot in San Pedro. You can dine over the water and watch sea life swim in and out of the lights at night. Food itself is okay...basic comfort eats with some cocktail variations. A good spot to visit for the novelty if you...More
