Happy hour is a great time to take in the local bar that catered to WW II vets. It's a popular spot for great people watching.

This place was recommended to us by one of our guides and we were not disappointed. The ceviche was delicious... and so was the pecan pie. We also had a seafood coconut soup which was delicious. Honestly, I've been craving it since we got back.
