We arrived on a cruise ship and rented our own Jeep to drive around. First stop was Mezcalitos. We were greeted by a kid with this huge iguana. Lizard was friendly and my 3 kids got to hold the animal. Really made their day. We...More

Situated directly on the beach, this bar/restaurant was a great place to stop for a beer or lunch. Service was excellent and very reasonably priced. With a sand floor, it had a great ambiance. The margaritas were excellent as well. Vistas over the beach and...More

Mezcalitos was a good restaurant. The food was good, but the location is fantastic. Sitting on the beach and eating like that was fantastic. The beach is a little more rough on this side of the island, so going in the water would be tough....More

We come here every year and enjoy their homemade salsa, drinks and laid back atmosphere. They have a crazy, adorable bar cat named Tequilla 2 who always shows off her talent for climbing. The first Tequilla was very sweet too. The guys working the bar...More

This was our second visit to Mezcalitos. It is a very quit spot with awesome views and hammocks on the beach. The service is fast and friendly. Excellent last place to stop before heading back to Cozumel. Servings are very large and taste great!!

Hi, as you come out of pier there are taxis that will bring you to Mezcalito's. Be shure to get a price from the beginning and make arrangements to be picked up. See you soon!!

Cheap enough, and much better than in town. It's always happy hour. There's no electricity on the east side of the island so everything on that side closes down before sunset.

You heard from whom, nobody charges 2 dollars any place to go into the ocean. You got tricked. If you are not a consumer customer, restrooms have a 1 dollar charge..... water, soap, employee, etc.
