The selection and food was really nice, as well as the service. We had the coconut fish, which was some of the best fish I've had, as well as the pork, which was also good. The drinks and desserts were also excellent.

We enjoyed a four plus hour cooking class at Altamar and enjoyed sampling the appetizers, lunch and margaritas the chefs were making for us. Best sauces and yucatecan food we had on our entire trip.
