Our food, music and ambiance combine the tastes and flavors of both of these two wonderful countries. We are located on the Malecon right in the center of the downtown beachfront. We offer comfortable inside dining as well as tables in the sand, just a few steps from the beautiful clear Caribbean waters. Best food and conversation in town!

My wife and I got off the Carnival Dream without any plans. I heard good things about Tropicante so we decided to make a day of relaxing on their beach. The owner Steve personaly greeted us and gave us the information about all the services they provide to help you enjoy your day. We stayed for 3 hours enjoying a beautiful beach, massages, food and reasonally priced drinks. They can also help you rent jet-skis, snorkling, boat rides and many other activities. They will start a tab for you and let you enjoy everything with just one bill at the end. All the guys working there will keep an eye out for your personal belongings while you are playing. If you must work, they do have wifi for their customers.

We will definitely be back!!

An unexpected treat! After stepping off of a Carnival cruise into a certified "tourist trap" we were in search of "something less touristy" when we happened upon Tropicante! Steve and the guys were absolutely AWESOME! Fantastic food ( especially the mini burritos and fish tacos!) and superior service. When one of our group came back from her massage she looked like she was ready to fall asleep standing! Prices are great and it is an unbelievable location with sand, palm trees, beach chairs, and everything you need to have a great day at the beach!

Great food, great service-beautiful location on the malecon at Mahahual Beach. Very laid back and the owner, Steve, is an American (Texas) who is a down to earth "host". They offer massages on the beach at a rate that is less than half of what the rates are on the cruise ships. The beer is very cold and the hospitality very warm. We appreciated their attention and were glad for the honesty about the area and the good conversation.

On a cruise with no wifi. A friend told us about Tropicante just before we left town. I emailed the owner from his website and had a reply within an hour. Free chairs on the beach reserved if only we agree to eat at his place. Food is excellent...we had guacamole, salsa and grouper fish tacos in the open air. Very friendly staff. Steve is the owner.

The downside is getting out of the cruise ship place...tell them you're going to the Hard Rock and they'll show you the exit. Once out walk down the street 100 yards to a yellow taxi cab stop. From there the fare is $2 per person. When you "arrive" you will be a block off of the beach...you walk down a narrow street till you get to the beach front road...lots of "competition" will try to lure you into their places...very friendly but persistent folks nearby.

Worth it once you get there. Free wifi which is really fast.
