I was on a mission to find Grouper while in Cozumel. I'd had it fresh many years ago and really enjoyed it. After talking with the local B&B owner (and consulting Trip Advisor) we landed at Pescaderia. Make sure that you have the storefront picture...More

We travel to Cozumel every year, and every year we manage to find our way to Pescadaria San Carlos for their filete Mexicana a la plancha. The serving of ceviche that the server brings at the start of the meal seems small only because we...More
