Fernando's beloved palapa shack is a Mahahual institution, with a friendly, homey atmosphere that's made the restaurant a sort of ersatz visitor bureau. The affordable menu features Mexican and Yucatecan specialties with a generous splash of gringo—great food that's an even better bang for your buck. Should you be in the market for a margarita, don't be shy—this is the place for expert guidance on all things agave, as suggested by the name, and the man-size tequila
bottle out front. You can even buy a bottle of Fernando's homemade tequila to go. If the indoor party scene isn't lively enough for you, head to the beachfront tables, where a DJ spins beats on the sandy dance floor.
