We are taking a private guide in Cozumel and stopping for lunch on the Eastside? of the Island. Any suggestions on what to look for in a place to eat lunch. I have an 11 year old that is sensitive to eating some things.
Since I got sick once from eating in Mexico - I don't eat or drink there any longer - bad experience (that's not to say that everywhere is like this). But what we do is bring a collapsilbe cooler in our luggage, order room service before we leave in the morning for our port and bring standwiches, etc. from the ship. We also take along water bottles with us (I'll refill with tea, softdrinks, whatever) this way we are not depending on the local area we are in for food - and, not to mention, it saves money.
We loved El Cabana del Pescador for outstanding lobster. It is not on the East coast of Cozumel but is not far. Have fun and don't worry about food if you eat in better restaurants and drink agua purificado. (purified water)
We had lunch at Coconuts on the easy side of the island...what a cool, mellow place and it has the BEST views of the coastline on the bluff it is situated on. You can sit outdoors or in (it's open air with a thatched roof), music is playing (the required Jimmy Buffett tunes!) and the food was great mexican. They also had more gringo food items..cheeseburgers w/fries, fried fish, chicken fingers etc. We had 2 entrees, 2 margaritas and 2 beers and w/tip the total was about $30.
