    We were driving from Panama City to Port St. Joe and we went through the long stretch of Tyndall AFB where there were no services to speak of. So when we got to Mexico Beach about 1:00, we stopped here for lunch. This is a breakfast or lunch place which features the giant Happy Face Pancakes

    Favorite Dish: I don't remember exactly what it cost, but I apparently had a salad plate and Bob had a sandwich and chips.

    Toucan is a typical "tiki" atmosphere that is
    half enclosed/half open-air. Good drink selection and decent menu. Since this is a small town, it is clearly the fanciest offering in Mexico Beach and PERHAPS just a little bit pricey. However, you get what you pay for and we've had several good meals there. Nice casual atmosphere and very cozy. Located on the beach a few doors down from the Buena Vista Motel in Mexico Beach, FL.

Mexico Beach Nightlife

  • babybird's Profile Photo

    by babybird Updated Jan 25, 2004

    As I've said, this is a nice ALTERNATIVE to nearby Panama City Beach. If you want loud techno dance clubs and tons of hot men and women, go to Panama City Beach instead.

    Nitelife in Mexico Beach is geared toward somebody who wishes merely to admire a gorgeous sunset, have a drink or two and turn in early. I recommend rising early to watch the dolphins swimming around offshore and enjoying some coffee and breakfast at the cafe down the road.
    In short, NIGHTLIFE in Mexico Beach is NILL....but that's OK too!!!!! You won't have to hear screaming drunk college kids or
    "thumpy-thumpy" gangsta-rap all night. You can relax, turn in early and GET AWAY from all that.

Mexico Beach Warnings and Dangers

  • babybird's Profile Photo

    by babybird Updated Jan 26, 2004

    It's a sleepy town. There is, however, one elementary danger I can think of. Watch yourself crossing the busy main road (hwy 98) that runs through Mexico Beach. Thru-traffic is heavy in the daytime and a pedestrian could easily be hit by a speeding car if they are too "relaxed."

    Jellyfish can also be a problem sometimes.
    Outside of that, you should have a great stay.
