  • This beach is in Isla Mujeres and here is where we stopped to eat after snorkeling at El Farito. It is a small beach, it has a dock where dock all the boats that come there to bring groups to lunch, and a shark have locked into a very small space and a tip they leave people slip into the water with the. I wouldn't never but I saw people doing it. Here we got to eat a very rich fish accompanied by white noodles and rice. Don't expect a feast meal for groups, the best is the fish. It is a beach ready to lead groups to lunch, it is not to stay long.

  • Go for the grilled fish at Playa Tiburon but don't support the penned shark business. Good fresh grilled sea bass but you need to pick some bones out. Seems to be mostly locals with lots of beer drink...  more »
  • The tour to island women is great, the island is magically pretty. Never return a tour where a shark cat have locked up. I can't believe it that in 2017 there is still insensitive people da to have locked up a shark and that also will excite many tourists by a cruel activity. My suggestion is to purchase a trip that does not have this activity included and not to leave money or tip the people that interact with the shark
