Probably the best food I have had in Yucatan in a small cosy, family-driven restaurant in a small (and hardly significant) Santa Elena! The guacamole itself, made from local (yellow) avocados, thick and itself is worth a trip from Cancun! Cochinita Pibil - marvellous. Highly...More

We were fortunate to be the only customers in this small eatery on the road past Santa Elena. The women greeted us warmly and invited us to tour their home as they made our tortillas over a wood fired stove. Our paunches were excellent.
