Great place, great drinks. The best part is definitely the tubes! You can float in the ocean while drinking (and the water is relatively shallow so you don’t need to be able to swim). It’s so relaxing and fun. Highly recommend!

First night in town, bar tenders were attentive. Breezy evening and the owner saw my wife shivering. She offered some surprisingly high quality merchandise (long sleeve shirt) that my wife will wear regularly.

It’s a great experience! Have your swimsuits on coz you can take your drinks to the dock and jump in the water. Oh yeah... great food and drinks, too!!

We loved Palapa Bar! This bar is definitely worth visiting when you are in San Pedro. It is located off of the roundabout in San Pedro, and you can park your golf cart along the beach! This area, Del Rio beach, was one of my...More

What's been said so far is spot on. Waterproof case is better than a ziploc bag. As for money, a ziplock is good in a deep and reliable pocket. I stopped brining my cell phone out with our group - one of us had a... More
