We love to stop at Mezcalitos on the back side of the island to have a few drinks and take in the awesome views of the rougher side of the island. Waves crashing onto the beach can be very soothing to the sole. Mezcalitos is a very friendly place to just hang out and enjoy yourself for a few hours.... More

We just returned from Cozumel. We rented a car and toured the Island. It was a beautiful, quiet morning at Mezcalitos. Our friends have been coming here for years and wanted to share this place with us! It was just like stepping back to a simpler time! The staff was helpful, but not pushy! We just had a couple of...

After reading the negative reviews I decided to post to maybe clarify before newcomers go to backside of island. Must go with mindset to enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the backside of the island and that includes no electricity. Order drinks on the rocks, take small bills so you can make appropriate change and pay in cash. Be prepared... More

Come on down and walk the beach, enjoy a cold drink and swing in the hammocks! This little gem is worth the short drive to get to it! What an excellent little place to sneak away too!

This place was cool...we had a few beers on our self-guided bar hop. Best place to get in the water with a bar close by. Apparently it's a "naked beach"...never saw anyone naked... Just a note, we got harassed by the shop owners a bit and their prices were outrageous. We were there "at the end of the day"...5:30, so... More

We have been going to Mezcalitos for over 25 Years. We love the atmosphere, the food and the incredibly friendly service. Not too mention the amazing view of the caribbean as well as getting to enjoy seeing the lights of Cuba shine on late at night across the ocean(Under good weather conditions). Their Private beach is very relaxing as well.... More

We decided to try Mescalitos after reading about them on Tripadvisor. Aside from the barkers, the place was okay... on the beach... strong margaritas served in little clay pots... We had the conch, fried fish, shrimp quesadillas, and a chicken sandwich. All of these items were good. For the price you could eat much better at La Mission but for... More
