One of the more upscale palapa-roofed restaurants on Playa Los Muertos beach, La Palapa is a favorite hangout for expats and tourists. The restaurant has been around since 1959 and is an expensive but quality choice for sunset cocktails or a romantic dinner. You can't go wrong with the Sunday brunch either, which is all-you-can-eat and gives you a coveted spot on the beach for the day.
Live music accompanies your evening meal or cocktail and you are sure to run into someone you know if you've been in town long. The service is usually superb and the waiters attentive. If the beach vendors get to be overwhelming, just ask the waiter to speak to them and he will shoo them away. At night the tiki torches and candlelight along with the crashing of the waves makes it a romantic setting for you and a loved one.
