Description: La playita is a project that is born in 2012 in view of a big need in bacalar: a place to eat, swim and spend the day in a great atmosphere, good music, a few hammocks and an unbeatable turquoise view. Located on the shore of the beautiful seven colors lagoon, La Playita offers an argentinean mexican fusion menu, with specialty on seafood, pizzas and regional dishes. To accompany an extense menu of juices, smoothies and cocktails. Surrounded by a dense nature and an enormous rubber tree, la playita is a place that you won't easily forget. Sit by the water, sunbathe on the dock, enjoy a romantic dinner or have a draft beer at the bar, because at La Playita we've got it all!

“Lovely lake front evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Gorgeous cabana style bar with plenty of space leading to a lake front dining area with hammocks and a view of the Laguna. Lovely food, good service, great selection. Salad made me sick but that's my reaction to the water - maybe suggest the salad is washed in drinking water before you order! The cocktails were quite good and a reasonable price. Lovely friendly atmosphere! Would go back!

“great little spot on the lagoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Stopped in for a snack. Very relaxing with a wonderful view. I wasn't able to get phone service at our rental house, so this was a great place to take a break and connect with the outside world.

“A beach-front restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

La Playita is a beach-front restaurant whose menu, unsurprisingly, lists mostly fish and seafood dishes, though nothing is particularly enticing. Prices are fair but the food is just so-so.

“nice ambiance, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The feel of this restaurant is really nice. The food is good and the prices reasonable. The location is great and the big tree in the front with the lagoon right there add the special touch.
Good music as well.
