Each year I like to hear where do you go to eat the first night in Maz. It is such fun to hear all the favorite places and also why. Is it for shrimp ? Where ? Is it to see a friend you have made thru the years. ? I think we all have made some very dear friends and are anxious to see them again. Looking forward to your rremarks.

First stop is Minestoa Bar; drinks & visit with our friend Jorge, on to Jungle Juice for another drink or two & a snack of some sort, but our first real dinner is always Panchos on the beach.

Since we usually start our two-week stay at PB EB before moving to PB Maz, we often dine at Mr. Lionso's the first night to get a quick and tasty shrimp fix.

Great post Karla. We just got back and are already planning our return in March. I've started a list of restaurants I want to visit in our 14 night stay and, without even thinking about it, was able to fill 12 of the spots. So I'm interested in hearing other people's suggestions to fill my other two free nights! First night, we always go visit our friends Jaime and Javier and their wives (the cooks) Carmen and Suey at Loco's Loco's. Always fun and great, cheap food!

Our first stop is usually Mega for Pacificos and groceries and dinner at Pedro y Lolas with some people watching. Maybe a coffee at Looney Beans after dinner with a stroll down the Malecon.

Villa Italia adjacent to El Cid Granada. We crave their wood oven baked shrimp/pepperoni pizza.

With the perfect connections from Arkansas have arrived by noon before and love that first beer and long afternoon at Joes enjoying sun, sand and music followed by sunset on top of Freeman and then dinner and music at Pedro and Lola's .... Ahhhhh I miss Maz!!!

Well we have a short history in Maz so we have not established first spots to hit upon arrival yet but we both agreed that when we arrive in Feb for our second visit, we will go to Henry's Taco Stand in the parking lot at Scorpio's confectionery on Cerritos! Great food, super good guava pie and Henry and his family are the best! Mmmmm I can almost taste it now! And truly this meal is almost free!
