    the restaurant

    When parking our car in Coba ruins parking lot (15pesos) we noticed small restaurant that looked uninviting to the majority of tourists.
    Off course we decided that was where we are going to have our lunch.
    Place was run by Mayan family.
    Mother in typical Mayan outfit poked her head out of the kitchen. Little 4 years old brought us the menu (and was extremely proud of himself for doing so). Another kid (about 8 years old) was our waiter for the day, and boy, he was one of the best waiters I have every seen (I had been waiting tables myself back in the days).

    Favorite Dish: We ordered:
    - natural homemade lemonade(#1 lemonade we had during entire trip),
    - quesadillas(#1 quesadilla we had during entire trip),
    - guacamole (#1 guac we had during entire trip)
    - and papas fritas made of real home grown mayan potato (#1 fies we had during entire trip)

    Have I said that the service was #1 service we had during entire trip???

    Nitce Ha: Make sure you dont sit to close to the walls

    Down stairs at Nitce Ha

    I cant tell you if the lunch would cost you a lot of money. We just payed one price for the whole pakkage. But i dont think you have to pay a lot. Its further away from Playa del Carmen. Up there you better take a credit card ha ha.

    Favorite Dish: If you have to sit on the lower part of the restaurant, make sure you sitt more in the middle of the building. We had terrible rain and it came in half way the building. We still had to go into the jungle so we would be even more wet, but if you sit down there for a BBQ its a pity when you splash away and cant find your food, because its swimming away.

    Nitce Ha: Dont miss a BBQ

    First stop at Nitce Ha

    If you want you can have a local BBQ in this restaurant. You make the excurtion the other way aroudn (first swimming, then the Maya's and then you arrive at this restaurant for a cup of coffee, then to Coba and then back to the restaurant for a BBQ).

    Favorite Dish: This BBQ is at the bottum floor of the restaurant and you better take some napkins with you when you go to the toilet. There wasnt any when we arrived earlie in the morning to have our toilet stop just before we would go into the jungle.

    Nitce Ha: Just make a choice from the buffet

    Buffet at Nitce Ha

    Beside we were not the only one who went to Coba there we some locals in the restaurant too. So there was a buffet made of different items, from chicken to salad. It was a pity that there wasnt a little note with all the food that told us what the food was....chicken.....beef....lizzard???

    Favorite Dish: Well we did had a good lunch. They even thought about a pudding!
    I love having fresh fruit when i go on holiday, thats also a way to keep the weight low.

    Nitce Ha: Leny was the first to arrive

    Leny at the restaurant

    The restaurant had two etages. The lower part is for a cup of coffee and the top part is for having diner or lunch.
    I have to say the top floor was cleaner then the lower part, and also the toilets were a lot cleaner then down stairs. Leny had to see the toilet after a long walk through the jungle in the heavy rain and came with the car. Frans, Peter and me had a little walk from Coba to the restaurant.

    Nitce Ha: Eat lizzard soup !

    Arrival at the restaurant, Peter, Frans and me

    Its a real Mexican restaurant. We havent been to an other one at this trip so i cant say if its good or worse then an other restaurant. What we ate was alright.

    Favorite Dish: But we were told that we would get lizzard soup and when we had the soup....well... i didnt like it that much.
    Its clean (for Mexican standards) and had a seperate toilet for women and men.

    Restaurant Caracol: By the lake

    As you approach the ruins, set back from the road and the lake are a small group of restaurants, palapa-style. Caracol, with a large covered terrace surrounded by palm trees and a view out to the lake is, arguably, the nicest of these. Good place to have a beer and simple, cheap food.

    Favorite Dish: Ice cold beer and a plate of home-style cooking
