A tranquil joint on the beach, north of Calle 11, this is a great spot for afternoon margaritas on the sand. Try the fresh lobster or a fish fillet stuffed to the brim with shellfish.
A large place with wicker chairs and a TV that gives you a daily dose of Spanish soaps, the Chivirico has excellent seafood and is well worth the visit. The ensalada de jaiba (crab salad) is delicious.
A cut above the other seaside joints, La Palapa has an expansive dining area looking down to the sea, attentive staff and savory seafood dishes, including coconut-coated shrimp served in a coconut shell.
Of all the sandy-floored beachfront joints here, this one gets the thumbs-up from the locals. Fresh seafood and ceviche are its main draw.
