This small restaurant under an open-air palapa is on the same property as Palma Real Hotel. I've been eating there for many years and it is consistently excellent (I own a vacation home nearby).

We were staying at Vida del Mar so this was the closest restaurant. It's just not good. I think we went there on an 'off' night but it's also just an entirely expat, overpriced, bland restaurant. Expensive, small portions, white rice served with everything. On this particular night we were a party of 5 adults and two kids- the waiter... More

There are actually a whole series of "Ramadas" along this beach. The term defines a thatched roof structure and that is what you have here with plastic tables and chairs. One ramada is distinguished from the next by the color of their table clothes. A friend of mine who has been many times, took me to his favorite of the... More

Great beach for kids. Great for people watching on weekends. Mostly locals. Sunken ship right offshore is good for snorkelers. So is area where the river enters and up the coast from there. If you want to eat, my favorite Ramafa is Miraldos. Bring a cooler with beer or whatever. They do not care as long as you order food.... More

Gotta try the "pescado sarandeado" and the mariscada! If you like seafood, this place is a must! Enjoy the beach while you wait for your food to be prepared.

We have eaten huachinango there every trip for the past twenty years! It is awesome! The place is great for people watching. You can take your own liquor, too!

La Boquita offers an authentic Mexican family beach experience. Great seafood and people watching. Gentle waves and warm water. Lots of restaurants to choose from. This is not nouvelle cuisine dining, it is unpretentious, real and good.
