AFAR asked me what my favorite local hangout is and it's this spot. CocoMaya, not even a year old, is the new restaurant on island. With a Latin Asian fusion menu you can get things like Duck Nachos, Pad Thai (it's seriously out of this world), Lobster Tacos and delicious mixed drinks. My favorite is the Gin-ger Lemonade. Come here to enjoy drinks before dinner or lounge with your after dinner drink in front of the firepit. I was here with friends on my visit to the island in November (when this photo was taken) but now I come here once or twice a week just to chat with the staff or just to enjoy the incredible beach view.
