    Our intention was to go to Pedro's (based on Yelp reviews), but it was closed today. We got accosted by Julio when we parked--he's employed by a local resort and trolling for gringos--but he was nice and we let him lead us to Federico's. We sat on the patio with a view of the water, ate seafood and drank margaritas. I had shrimp rellanos, Tim had fish and shrimp tacos. Everything was delicious and didn't seem Americanized. This is a cash-only place, but everything is marked in US $$ amounts, or at least that's the menu we were given, now that i think about it. Anyway, I would recommend this place.Read more

    One of many simple restaurants along the Malecon. Tim had been here before, so it was easy to choose before we got ambushed by all the other street hawkers representing other restaurants. We had fish and shrimp tacos, which were cheap and delicious. Didn't seem as windy here as it did back at the house, which was a bit of a blessing. Fun to watch the birds and fish right off the patio.Read more

    Wrecked at the Reef

    December 16, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 73 °F

    If you don't see the billboards advertising this place along the highway from the border, you're driving with your eyes closed. I came here with Viv and Charles last year, and it was as I remembered, an amusing caricature of a Mexican bar for all the American frat boys and sorority girls staying in the nearby resorts. Margaritas are passable, food is pretty bad...just a pale imitation of what you can get cheaper and better pretty much anywhere else in town. Despite this, it was a fun place to peoplewatch on a Friday evening.Read more

    Satisfied Frog

    December 17, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ 🌙 61 °F

    This restaurant/bar is at the very end of the Malacone, where you have to U-turn and double back on the higher road. I would totally come here over Wrecked any day--it's got a similar "get wasted" vibe, but seems much less like a frat hangout. We came for an early dinner on a Sunday evening, so it was like us and a dozen people over 60. Whatever, it's who we've become. Fun music, good margaritas, nice view, friendly service. Win-win-win-win.Read more
