Great little beach bar. Shrimp quesadilla was great Outdoor beach bar. We sat at bar. Some outdoor beach tables. If there was a tour bus, could see they would get swamped, thankfully, we had great service. What more do you need?

This restaurant is a little pricey and cash only but has delicious food and you can sit with your feet in the sand while taking in the beautiful blue ocean.

What more needs to be said of Rastas "Freedom in Paradise" What a great view, location and feel. The perfect stop while on your tour around the island of Cozumel.

As we make our trip around the Cozumel Island, we always stop for a beer and photo shoot. Beautiful water and waves hitting the coral rocks make for a great picture background.
