Are we talking about the far west end of the beach? That project has been going on for ages. They tore all the wooden fish shacks down and started building cement kiosks. I wouldn't be surprised if that project is four or five years old.

Does this look like the area where the place is you are talking about? This was September 2017 after about two years since the project was started.

Just west of Bocana Restaurant. I call it the locals section cause you never, ever see tourists in this area. This is Presidente, Brugal, and bring a big pot of food to the beach territory.







This was the original wooden shacks that were to be replaced and I was under the impression the original vendors of the wooden shacks had first shot at the new buildings.

They used to try to ripped off all the tourists there with bait n switch pricing, there was a woman there who was fair but be cautious.

You mean every body, you can not buy there or any restaurant nearby without asking the price or make sure. The manu has it, eat there can turned more expensive than eatting in a fancy reataurant over the water in the east side of Boca Chica after Hamaca Hotel.

Be smart! Cook and eat at home. And go out for a desert and a drink ONLY.
