We tried 3 appetizers: deep fried bacon, conch fritters and sausage dip. All were good but the sausage dip was awesome! It's not a cheap place (comparable to Canada and US) but it has tire tubes that you can float in while having a drink,...More

Palapa Bar has a great location out on the water- but it’s real attraction is its friendly staff! All of the bar tenders and wait staff are super friendly and learn all their customers names. On our first night in San Pedro they even kept...More

By far one the best bar/restaurants that we went to. You can go and lay in the inner tubes in the water and they will swing beer down to you in a bucket! The food is great and the staff is super friendly!

Not a very "local" vibe but a very cool place to stop and have a beer or a panty ripper (specialty drink that the wait staff love repeating, well at least while we were there). Food was good, prices decent, staff amazing. Some inner tubes...More
