El Galeón del Caribe
Even though it’s right across the street from top Cancún resorts near the southern end of the Hotel Zone, the entrance to this open-air restaurant remains known only to locals plus a few in-the-know travelers. Walk down the wooden staircase to find a dirt floor, a palapa roof, and tranquil lagoon views, plus affordable Caribbean seafood dishes prepared in an outdoor kitchen. You’ll also get traditional comforts like ceviche and garlic shrimp, plus a selection of Mexican beers, but the highlights are the hot and fresh pescadillas: shredded fish in pan-fried tortillas.
