We asked about a good place that locals frequent in Tulum for lunch and he recommended El Camello. It is your typical local restaurant, it's not the highest quality but the quality is good for authentic local food. It was a hot day so we got the medium ceviche and drinks which was more than enough for both of us. The fish is fresh and the ceviche was good, my girlfriend said it was the best she thinks she's ever had (and we eat a lot of ceviche). The fish was fresh and soft. It nearly melted in your mouth, there was a lot of tomatoes too. They serve chips, bean dip, a bowl of salsa, and bowl of lime habanero sauce (my favorite) which is soooo spicy but good! I just spoonfuls of the lime habanero sauce over my ceviche and ate it with the chips. On top of the good food was a fair price, we paid $125 pesos for the total meal, I left $150 pesos for the 15%-20% tip. Good place and would recommend for a stop. If you're expecting a fine dining experience don't expect much but if you like taqueria style food and want local, authentic seafood dishes that all the common locals would eat, this is the place. There's always locals here eating.
