Caliente is an informal restaurant on the beach. We had a great meal there. My wife had a seafood stew and I had blackened snapper. Both were excellent.

The fish fajita wasnt on the supper menu but they made it for me anyway. Big pieces of fresh snapper. The staff, including the manager, checked on us frequently. 3 thumbs up.
