Another day with the jeep now dubbed ‘green hornet’

First stop: Tortillas Real Maya or Real/Royal Mayan Kitchen

This is real corn tortilla cooked on sight and made in the Mayan tradition, using 100% organic fresh ground corn (masa) and a little salt for seasoning.  Filled with chicken and topped with pickled red onion – so tasty and there are more than 12 variations.

Stewing tip: Bring lots of amigos and have a fiesta.

Location: 122 Rueda Medina Ave, across the street from the passenger ferry terminal

Second stop: Back to Oscar’s

One of the best on the island and a meal on its own. This guacamole has chunks of avocado and all the other good ingredients that pack it with flavor.

Stewing tip: Sit at the back of the restaurant by the boats. You won’t hear the traffic and you’ll love the nautical atmosphere.

Third stop: Villa La Bella

We were thirsty!! On the windy Isla side, this is a great little bar that serves drinks in fun and authentic glasses including coconut shells. Be sure to park your cart for an icy drink.

Location: Carretera Perimetral Al Garrafon – if you loop around the island this icy ocean-front bar will be on your cart path.

Fourth stop: Sunset Grill

My new favorite – Tikin xic (grilled fish). Today it was snapper and always fresh. Every ounce including the eyes were devoured – I was a shark in disguise.

Location: At Nautibeach Condos on playa norte

Stewing tip: The owner of Sunset Grill, Felipe Biermann is also the owner of Tortillas Real Maya and he is confident that you will love his authentic Mexican cuisine.


Stayed stewed for another day of food on Isla.
