Description: Beach front restaurant/bar with an extensive drink menu served by one of the best bartenders in town! Buy an open bar pass, try our "Amberita margarita", cheese garlic salsa, ceviches, schedule a snorkel excursion or diving from our beach, go for a swim, use the free WI-FI or read a good book and listen to music while lying on a padded lounger. Do you prefer shade or sun? We also have live music jam nights and am looking forward to el primer Festival Internacional Mahahual: Cruzando Fronteras Mexico-Italia. During our temporary transition, we are referring some patrons to Oxtankah located in the center of the malecon. Snorkeling excursions start at $25 per person.

“Great time at The Black Pearl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Stumbled up on this place by accident. We had a great time, great food and excellent service. The two owners are lovely ladies who make sure everything is perfect for you. The massage was wonderful!! If coming in off the cruise ship, take the bus to town and it is down a few doors. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.

“Great time in Costa Maya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is s MUST for anyone visiting Costa Maya. We found The Black Pearl while beach combing. The food was wonderful, the drinks strong and tasty, and an added perk, the place is very CLEAN. Amber and Christina, the owners, quickly start to feel like family as they share the journey that brought them to Costa Maya and The Black Pearl. We relaxed, enjoyed the beautiful ocean views and tropical breezes, and maybe a few more margaritas than we had initially planned.

“Great New Restaurant and Beach Bar in Mahahual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

The Black Pearl has new owners and a GREAT chef! They are in a good location on the beach with unobstructed views of the beautiful blue waters. Chef Juan has his own salsa creations that are really flavorful. Best place in town for fresh chips and 3 killer salsas - a red, a green, and a guajillo oil salsa that leaves a little after burn with a really interesting flavor of secret spices. The Black Pearl is a wonderful addition for locals and vacationers - the kind of place to hang out on the beach on a padded lounger with a good book and "made-from-scratch" margaritas (and I am VERY picky about my 'ritas). Food is fresh and tastey. Amber and Christina, the new owners, really know how to provide top notch customer service and are "freaky" about cleanliness and quality. Give them a try - you will be glad you did.

“Best Mexican food/ service ever!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stumbled upon The Black Pearl while visiting costa maya on our cruise. We immediately met the owner, Amber. She is American, and one of the nicest people we met on the entire cruise. We ate on the beach in front of the restaurant. The food was unbelievable!!! We got some kind of shrimp cocktail with salsa that was the BEST thing we ate on our whole vacation, including everything we ate on the ship! The fajitas were phenomenal, tacos were amazing, quesadillas were delicious! The service was superb, and our waiter spoke perfect English. I can't say enough about The Black Pearl. Great food, service, atmosphere, and value! If you're going to Costa Maya...STOP HERE!!!!!
