When the chef at your resort leans over a steaming buffet tray of his own (delicious and very healthy) fare to tell you about a restaurant the locals love, you listen. When he mentions their specialty drink, a michelada de camarone, which is like a Bloody Mary minus the vodka, plus beer and fresh shrimp, you take a mental note. When he raves about their fish tacos, you wonder if it would be rude to go there RIGHT NOW.
El Camello does not disappoint. Locals and tourists alike gather around tables layered with red plastic cloths. Mexican music videos play in the recesses of the bar. The space doubles as a fish store. Fishermen deliver their catch in coolers before sitting down to lunch themselves. I don’t know about you, but I want to eat at the fish restaurant the fishermen frequent.
Do not miss the fish tacos, which come three to a plate and are served until 5pm. We ordered two, declared it way too much food, and proceeded to eat every bite.
