  • Ambar Surf SHop: Surfers Beware

    by GaryMcCoy Written Feb 27, 2012

    Do not rent boards here.
    I was totally taken advantage of when returning 3 surfboards last week. They added on charges at every turn when I brought the boards back.
    All the boards were fine, yet one had about a 1/2" chip in it. They wanted $50.00 US to repair it. When I questioned why so much, he said it would now be $80.00.
    They then charged me $30.00 for being a couple hours late on the return. My quoted price for 2 weeks was $350...I ended up paying $540!

    Ronny's #1: Groceries in Mal Pais

    Groceries in Mal Pais

    We rented a house on the beach, so needed food we could cook at home, mostly breakfasts and lunches, so found Ronny's #1 in Mal Pais served our needs for fresh vegetables, cheese, cokes, eggs and butter, and whatever else we wanted to eat at home. Easy layout and good prices.

    What to buy: breakfast and lunch foods... beer, liquor and more

    What to pay: retail

    Product C's: fresh fish to cook

    by dustmon Written Dec 11, 2011
    fresh fish

    Product C's is right near the crossroads at Playa Carmen in the little shop area close to the beach. They have fresh fish from the fishermen down the road for sale to take home for grilling if you happen to have a kitchen. They sometimes have cooked soups, ceviche and other goodies for sale as well.

    What to buy: Ceviche, a raw fish salad "cooked" with lime juice and vinegar with other goodies thrown in for spicing up! Definitely recommended!
