Eating

Guerrero Negro's best food bargains are the numerous taco stands along Blvd Emiliano Zapata, which keep erratic hours but maintain high standards. The three near the Pemex, including delicious Carnitas Michoa-can (full meal US$3 to US$5), are great.

Asadero Viva México (Blvd Emiliano Zapata; tacos US$1-2.50; ® 6pm-midnight Mon & Tue, noon-1am Wed-Sun) The friendly owners of this colorful taquería (taco stand) whip up delicious carne asada (grilled beef) tacos, quesatacos (quesadillas with meat) and tortas (sandwiches) to a mix of locals and tourists who keep returning for the great food and atmosphere.

Birrería Brianda (cnr Blvd Emiliano Zapata & Rubio Ruiz; tacos US$1.50, birria US$2) From 8am to 2pm, this small taco stand serves outstanding birria de res (a type of beef stew) either in Sty-rofoam cups or in tacos. It reopens for the evening at 7pm and serves delicious carne asada tacos and stuffed potatoes. It's east of Hotel El Morro.

Restaurant Puerto Viejo (% 157-1472; Blvd Emiliano Zapata; breakfast US$2.50-5, mains US$4.50-8) On the main drag, near Hotel El Morro, Puerto Viejo serves good, cheap breakfasts. For example, US$2.50 will buy you eggs with ham or chorizo. Dinners are Mexican and seafood.

Cocina Económica Letty (Blvd Emiliano Zapata; mains US$3-8) On the southern side of Blvd Zapata, Letty serves very fine antojitos and seafood at friendly prices.

Restaurant El Morro (Blvd Emiliano Zapata; mains US$6-9) Beside its namesake motel, this dinerstyle eatery serves reliable chicken, meat and seafood. Think Mexican comfort food.

Restaurant Malarrimo (Blvd Emiliano Zapata; mains US$7-15) At its namesake motel this highly regarded restaurant specializes in seafood in both traditional antojitos and more sophisticated international dishes. It's not cheap, but portions are abundant. The 'lions' paws' (scallops smothered in butter and herbs) are legendary.

Mario's (% 157-1940; Transpeninsular Km 217.3; US$7-20) Just north of town (and just south of the Paralelo 28 monument) on the Transpeninsular, this long-time favorite serves excellent, moderately priced seafood inside a giant, deluxe palapa-style building complete with gravel floor and wooden tables.
