Fodor's Review

The simple, off-the-grid thatched palapa seems to exhale with a breezy, unbothered joviality; bring your camera: the vistas of jungle and endless sea make you feel as if you're at the edge of the world.

More creative than the standard fish in coconut-sauce, there's calamari in its own ink, seafood paella, grilled spiny lobster, or a stir-fry with squid or conch. Vegetarians are well-accommodated, too. Be sure to call
