One of the best seafood restaurants in Akumal and the area. Lovely setting, excellent seafood and a must if in Akumal.

Food was really good, still a tad expensive for Mexico but you get used to being completely ripped off everywhere you go in Riviera Maya! Staff were friendly, spoke good English and looked after us well. Nice little place!

Excellent Margaritas by Gonzales. Best in Mexico. Staff is always fun and friendly. Atmosphere is great, not on the beach but under palm trees and palapa with nice breezes and excellent food. Everything on the menu has been terrific. Ask about fishing or snorkeling tours...More

La Cueva Del Pescador is a good spot for an amazing Mexican dinner, with the prices on food and drinks being quite reasonable. That being said it isn't really a party and nightlife type set up. Heading down to Playa Del... More
