A five minute cab ride from the port for $2. Gorgeous beach and good food. Enjoyed the heaping nachos and received fantastic service from our waiter Cain. Email Steve to reserve a lounger or table. Got a fantastic massage right on the beach.

It was amazing to see our name on the chalkboard on our arrival. I had emailed Steve prior to reserve a variety of chairs for our family. Steve greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed and never seemed too busy to chat. Cain and George were very helpful and kept the buckets of beers coming. All the... More

We were in from the Norwegian Getaway, "getting' away" from Bike Week in Daytona Beach, lol. Took the port trolly to the "last stop," ignored all of the "come sit at my beach" hucksters and just walked down the Malecón, checking shops and restaurant menus. About halfway down, I was intrigued by the offerings at Tropicante, but my wife wasn't... More

We read some of the great reviews online and thought we would give Tropicante a try. I emailed Steve the owner to reserve beach loungers by the water. They were all reserved already so he set aside a table for us instead. If we wanted to we could move chairs near or into the water. We enjoyed our time here... More

Before our cruise we were directed to Steve's Tropicante by The Cruise Captain, Mark Stone. Was just as Mark had suggested. A 5 minute cab ride ($2 per person) from the port. Great place to lounge around all day long with good beer, beautiful sand and water. Steve is living the life we all claim we want to do after... More

Someone I was traveling with emailed Steve just a few days before our cruise and he reserved us loungers. We hopped on the $3 trolly from the back of the Costa Maya port and got right off in front of Tropicante. Someone who worked there was waiting at the trolly stop and had a sign with our name on it...

So glad I discovered this place! We had a great time. The view was amazing, the service was top notch and the food was absolutely delicious. We stayed the whole day and had massages, the kids played in the water, we ate lunch and laid out in the sun. The staff was very accommodating and everything was great!

We emailed Steve a few days before our cruise left and he reserved us loungers. When getting to the Costa Maya port we took the trolly transportation and were greeted right at the stop and escorted to the restaurant. We were immediately shown to our chairs and were able to place orders. Massages were excellent, food was amazing, and you... More

A group of seven of us showed up from a cruise with no reservations but were taken care of immediately. We had a table and chairs with a palapa, the water was right there to take advantage of too. We were waited on all day and never were without a drink or food. I also had a massage that was... More
