Fantastic lobster spot

Located at the beachfront of Playa el Agua, Restaurant Marlin features a roof-covered dining room but is in essence an outdoor restaurant with open windows to let in the ocean breeze. Like the majority of restaurants on the Playa El Agua strip, it has a fairly broad seafood menu… My friend and I... read more

somewhere you can finally relax with no noises, the owners are there to help if you need assistance. There are wifi near the administration and restaurant.
