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!

This property is cruise ship driven. It is right on the beach and not to be missed. Lots of options in Costa Maya. Steve is the owner and he is an American from Dallas Texas. Steve will share with you his wit and wisdom on being in Mexico. It was a fantastic day with a great view of the ocean. Steve keeps his chairs in top shape. Order the chicken nachos

We chose to visit Tropicante during our recent cruise. Reservations were made several weeks prior to arrival and Steve emailed all the information we needed to get a taxi and make it safely from the cruise port. The short taxi ride was only $2 per person! Upon arrival at Tropicante we were greeted by the staff and taken to our reserved location on the white sandy beach, where we had a table, chairs and loungers waiting. After a couple of minutes another staff member greeted us explained the activities available, gave us the free Wi-Fi password and asked us if we would like anything to drink. After being disconnected from all electronics for 5 days, the kids immediately logged into the Wi-Fi and checked their Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Once everyone was finished checking in back home, we ordered our first round of drinks. I ordered a large house margarita on the rocks($8), the kids had coke and orange soda and my wife a bottle water. The margarita was very good and just what I needed to get the day started.

The next hour or so was spent relaxing in the lounge chairs while the kids snorkeled off the beach. When the kids returned from snorkeling they wanted to see "more", so we booked a boat snorkel tour that was available 10 yards from us. The tour was $25 each and lasted about 1 hour. Snorkeling on the tour was decent and worth the $25.

After we returned from snorkeling we ordered a plate of chicken nachos and more drinks. This time it was a Corona for me. A variety of Mexican beers are available like Corona, Sol, Dos Equis, Pacifico, Modelo and Montejo. The nachos were ready very fast and were tasty. The nachos made me "thirsty" so I went inside to the Tropicante bar and ordered a Montejo. The bartender was very nice and even gave me a free shot of tequila :)

With a couple hours left before we had to be back on the ship, we decided to walk up the strip to browse some of the shops and then we settled our tab and packed up. We were pleasantly surprised when our total cost for the day including snorkeling came in at less than $100 for 4 people.

Thank you for such a fun and memorable time.

Tropicante was a great stop for us. Steve makes it very easy to reserve a spot ahead of time and emails easy directions on how to find a taxi just outside of the port area. The staff is very attentive but not pushy, they just make sure you have what you want. The beach area was clean and the water was calm and warm. The food was very good and drinks even better! I enjoyed my share of strawberry margaritas which were delicious while the rest of the family went snorkeling for $25 per person. This stop was beautiful and affordable for our family of four. Thanks
to Steve and the staff for a great day!
