My wife, youngest daughter, and her husband had a wonderful couple of hours in the afternoon on September 3, 2014 at Tropicante. We emailed Steve, the owner, about a week ahead of time to ensure we had a table. When we arrived everything was perfect - great view on the beach, tasty drinks, and good food (we only had some...

This place is awesome. I emailed Steve to reserve table and chairs before we arrived on the Carnival Liberty in September 2014. We took the bus there for $3.00 per person and were meet by Steve's wife when we arrived and were treated like a King and Queen. While we were there we walked up and down the strip looking... More

Visited during a cruise stop on Costa Maya. All reservations handled via e-mail pre-cruise with Steve. Quick and inexpensive cab ride as Steve promised. Now the important part: Tropicante exceeded all of our expectations. The beach and water were BEAUTIFUL. Chairs and umbrellas were waterfront and awaiting our arrival. The service was exceptional. The drinks were flowing and inexpensive and... More

This is a must stop in Costa Maya, the locals will tell you they don't know where it is, but if you go on back side of town beach side you will find them along the beach. This is the only restaurant on this beach I would do business with, very honest owner Mr. Steve he was wonderful along with... More

Don't be fooled by the "restaurant" label, this is a great place to chill-ax with your favorite somebody or family members. Steve, George, and team did a great job taking care of us and making us feel welcome. Reasonable prices for everything. Definitely connect with Tropicante about a day on the beach!

The restaurant was right in the middle of the downtown area on the beach. They offer free beach recliners that can be reserved online at no cost so that if you arrive on a cruise ship day there is no question of whether or not you will have beach access with service for food and drink. A used bookstore and... More
