We visited Bahai Tortuga 3 times during our visit to Isla Mujeresa in December 2012.
Food was GREAT (we ordered appetizers), bartenders JJ and Emilio were very
nice, efficient and helpful and the owners (Danny and Rhonda) could not have been any more congenial. Views, atmosphere, clean facilities and overall experience was wonderful. This is a casual, open air bar/restaurant with a new dock under constuction (opens in Jan? Feb?) which will make a visit even more exciting. About a $4/40 peso's taxi drive from downtown Isla. See you soon Danny, Rhonda, JJ and Emilio

We ate lunch here. all three of my children 6, 9, and 11 all loved the food. This says a lot! My husband and I also thought the food was wonderful. Our table was clean and the staff was very courteous and fast. The atmosphere is very relaxed and laided back. We will definitely return for lunch again here.

Kenny Chesney would approve! Watching the sunset, sipping habanero margaritas, enjoying delicious enchiladas verde...not traditional, but certainly a Christmas to remember!

After seeing this being on the top of trip advisor and passing by it for 3 days we decided to stop by on Friday night. We had the conch fritters and the fried shrimp, best shrimp we had. The live music was good ole country music. I'm facebook famous now for a tequila shot that the owner Rhonda took. She is from Texas and so am I ,
So I really enjoyed visiting with her. We went back the next night to watch the cowboy game. Can't wait till our next trip. Great bar

It's the afternoon of News Year's eve. My wife and I are desperately searching for a restaurant that is showing the USC / Georgia Tech Sun Bowl game. We scour the town to no avail, but an ex-pat suggested Tortuga Bahia. It was a cab ride from downtown (or a walk if you are up to it). When we got there, we were greeted as if we were long lost friends. They were able to access the game and we watched it with some GT fans (were a Trojan family). The Trojans lost, but the service was excellent. The nachos with chicken.were to die for. We saw a beautiful sunset and made many new friends. Awesome place...of the beaten path but worth the trip!
