Lunch at El Camello Jr, Dinner at Piedra Escondida, Tulum, Mexico

We always head to El Camello Jr in Tulum town to pick up fresh seafood and dine on their tasty local dishes. They have a fresh seafood market on the left side, and the restaurant on the right and out front. Located just a little ways past the main Tulum pueblo strip on the left, I always look forward to our visit.

Another night we decided to try somewhere we had never eaten and chose Piedra Escondida on the Tulum Beach Road.
