Fodor's Expert Review Pelicanos

$$$ Puerto Morelos Seafood

Enjoy fresh seafood on the shaded patio of this family-owned restaurant in the heart of town. Try fish prepared al ajo (in a garlicky butter sauce), breaded, grilled, or tikin–xic style (marinated with adobo de Achiote and sour oranges). The fried shrimp, served in a coconut shell, melds sweet and salty, while the massive margaritas pack a powerful punch. Pelicanos also offers a variety of 4-hour excursions that include fishing, snorkeling, then cooking the daily catch at the restaurant (from M$3,388).
