The food was very nice. Good atmosphere. Nice too look at the sunset. Top place to have a date or a nice evening right by the beach.

On Toucari Beach, this restaurant is also a renting equipment place to enjoy the site. In addition to snorkeling equipment, they also have kayaks. Fresh fish of the day is served. Nice vegetarian option if you ask. Thank you Dereck. We all liked this place.

We stayed overnight at Toucari Bay, a short walk from Keepin' it Real that was always bustling with activity, energetic chatter and a lot of good food. Besides binging, we rented a kayak in the evening and had a pleasant time, watching the sunset from...More

It will depend on how long the cruise stays. It could take about an hour and a half to get there without traffic. You wold have to tell the taxi to wait for you.
