I have to say that LaPerlita has the best lionfish around as well as the best michelada. However, on my last trip a couple of weeks ago, I learned that they serve endangered eagle rays in place of shark on their menu. Both sharks and...More

La Perlita has the best seafood I have ever eaten. We always make it a point to go there at least once when we are on the island.

We went there for 2 things: the lionfish (because it's famous for it) and the lobster. But, it had no lionfish that's day... A little but disappointing... So we took a lobster tail at 700 pesos. It's served with a tablespoon of rice, but the...More
