Playa translates to
beach and Playa Lancheros is right on the beach.
Lots of folks spend the day - swim, sun, lunch, swim,
sun, drink. The beach is nice, but Playa Lancheros is
famous for their tix'n xic - red snapper filet coated
with achiote paste and grilled crisp.
I started with one
of the best guacamoles on the island. Made to
order and served with an avocado pit to prove it is
Shown above, the tix 'n xic. To the
right, Tix 'n xic secreto. The differnce - sorry,
it is a secret.
One warning, beware
the birds. For some reason they descended en masse on a
couple, drove the couple away, and celebrated their victory with a
feast of leftovers.
The eating happens
either in a cement slab pavilion or a shaded row of
tables right out on the beach. If one carries a
few extra pounds, consider the concrete. Those
chairs can sink pretty deep into the sand.
