I don't know how they do it, but the battered shrimp is crunchy-yummy on the outside and so JUICY on the inside. A must-have when in Playa Del Carmen (or if you're passing through on your way South).

Many places try to over complicate the simple taco, that is not needed, if the baseline ingredients are perfect. La Floresta have delicious fish, shrimp and crab tacos, seafood cocktails and ceviches of the highest quality, and very reasonable prices.

We had the fish tacos in the afternoon and came back the next day for the Carne asada and chorizo tacos. Super delicious, and the location is immediately next to the off ramp. This place is great.
