We've been going to the Sea Monkey for lunch for several years. We love the fish tacos! And when finished, we head out under the palapas for a margarita and snacks for the afternoon. It's not fancy, but it's inexpensive and the food is good.

Since the Sea Monkey opened, every winter we are on the beach. The waiters, under the supervision of Raphael and Alvaro are always friendly and helpful. Good service and cold beers at $1,00 US each, what could be better.

We just had small bites...shared the tempura mushrooms and had a Cadillac Margarita. After having some choice margs at other places, this margarita was just OK. However, can’t beat the view.

Stop here on the way to dinner at another establishment. The beers were cold, but so was the appetizer of stuffed jalapeños. 😳. We had a beautiful view of the sunset then moved on...
