Fodor's Expert Review El Camello Jr.

$$ Tulum Seafood

By the time you get to this local favorite at the very end of Tulum's downtown strip, you'll think you've already left town. In fact, you've just arrived. Called "Camellito" by locals, it's famed for having Tulum's freshest seafood—and the jammed parking lot is testament to its enduring popularity. Fish or shrimp tacos are light and fresh, but the full splendor of the place is expressed by its whole grilled or fried fish, served with generous mounds of rice, beans, and plátanos. Come hungry. The lively scene and tropical ambience are a Mexican original.
