Tips: Watch out for the salsa. It can be very so that it will ruin your taste buds for the rest of the meal. When the locals say hot, it means hot! If you're not the adventurous type when it comes to food, there's lots of great, easy to eat dishes such as bacon & eggs, steak and freshly grilled fish.
