El Viajero is a good spot to eat fish. They serve nice portions. Their scampies are wonderful. The service is good and staff is very friendly. They can arrange your transport (by boat) to and from the restaurant.

Enjoyed a good lunch with a great view while traveling down the river. The restaurant offered burgers, chicken dishes, and multiple seafood entrees. There was also a water slide, rope swing, and hammock area to enjoy after lunch.
