We serve traditional Mexican homemade style foods, just like Carlos’s mother made.

All our meals are made from scratch with the freshest of ingredients. Herbs like cilantro and parsley are grown in the garden at Carlos’s home.

The quality of the food is exceptional. Customer service is a priority. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You might come in a stranger, but you will go out with friends.

We are a family business. Don’t be surprised if the smiling server is Carlos, his sister or his brother.

Fish is fresh, caught daily. Ask us about the daily catch.

Carlos bought La Palapa in January 2016 from the retiring owner.

Since then he has developed from a clientele of local families to serving tourists. Many of the new clients come from nearby TAO Inspired Living at Gran Bahia Principe Resort.

Resident’s there are impressed with the quality of the food and the friendly service. The regulars are often greeted by name by Carlos.
