I didn't eat there, but I did grab a Panty Ripa (or Ripper, if you aren't in Jamaica) and get into the water to bob on an inner tube. The drink was the best drink I've had, the view up the beach of the palms and blue water was tranquil, and I wondered where I'd ever recreate that experience?

We stopped by the Palapa Bar, because we were told that you must stop here while in San Pedro. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the location is great! It is just a few minutes north of San Pedro (by bike) and you are out over the water about 100 meters from shore. This place is very unique in that you can sign your name and a quote on just about any location you can find - also you can grab an inner-tube out front and float while drinking delicious concoctions (delivered by a bucket on a rope & pulley)! We didn't eat any food here, because we weren't hungry - but they have Lots of fun signs and quotes that you could spend a whole (happy) hour reading. When we were there, the owners introduced themselves and we really enjoyed talking to them! I can't recall their names, but they were very nice & laid back and we felt like old friends coming for a drink!

The best ones I have ever had! The food and drinks were slow but its such a neat place that you dont mind. It was very crowded the night we went....love the inner tube bar where you order drinks and they send them down in a bucket! Great view while you are eating too!

This place was great because you could relax in the water. At our resort and I think most of the others have tons of sea grass at shore so you cannot go in unless you go to the end of a pier and jump off. We didn't eat here but we heard the food was great. Although the cocktails were very refreshing while we were floating on our tubes. There was also this guy who was snorkeling under the dock and kept bringing up different crabs and other crazy creatures which was really cool to see. I'm giving service an average mark because they never checked on us again after we ordered drinks at the bar and went to the tubes.
