Paititi del Mar

Top choice seafood in Acapulco

Set in a tropical garden under a palapa, this inland seafood restaurant prepares dishes that put most of Acapulco's beachside eateries to shame. The ceviche paraiso is a flavor explosion of fresh tuna, mango, ginger, strawberry and habanero; order it with a refreshing cucumber-lime water. For the main course, the grilled or ajillo-style octopus draws high praise.

'Coloso' buses, which can be picked up along Avenida Costera anywhere south of the Hwy 200 turnoff, stop about 2km north of the restaurant on Bulevar de las Naciones.
