So lovely to walk down the beach and end up on the terrace of the Ylang Ylang Restaurant, having a cool drink, enjoying the garden, watching the lizard peck at the grass.

Food is good. But it is a little expensive. Good energy drinks with spirulina. Beautiful beachfront view. They have also a hotel with a swimming pool and they offer yoga lessons and massages.

We stayed for four days and all the food we ate was freshly prepared and there was a welcoming use of local products and fresh produce. The freshly made soft drinks were also a delight. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate.

Response from YlangYlangManagement | Property representative |
Tango Mar is about a 30-35 minute drive from Montezuma. If staying at Ylang Ylang you would need to walk in to town (10-12 minute walk) and then take a taxi from there or take your rental car if you will have one.
