Once on shore, your senses will be ignited by the sounds, sights, smells and taste. Dining experience under the stars. Enticing aromas of freshly grilled steak, chicken and fish will lure you towards your private beachside table bathed in the soft glow of candles. The dinner buffet is complimented by freshly prepared vegetables, salads and authentic handmade tortillas. Our dessert trays boast brownies, pies, traditional rice pudding, and plenty of local fresh cut tropical fruit.
**Extreme Zip Line Adventure.
