Luna Luna

A cozy, Mexican restaurant in Bucerias, Luna Luna is a local’s favorite for delicious breakfast. Freshly squeezed juices and Mexican specialty breakfast items such as chilaquiles, sopes, and egg dishes are on the menu. Definitely try the Banana Sopes with Black Beans for something different. Service is sometimes a tad slow, but the food is well worth the wait. Large iguanas can sometimes be spotted high in the tree branches in the front courtyard.  


La Postal

La Postal is situated on a corner property a block inland from Bucerias beach with lots of shady, mature trees that offer a great respite from the sun. Wood fired pizzas, homemade pastas, sandwiches and salads are available. Service is friendly and fast, and the prices are reasonable. Want a glass of wine with your meal?  Order the house carafe which serves two typical glasses. After dinner, make sure to try the peanut butter chocolate gelato at the Buonissimo shop conveniently located right in the corner of the restaurant.
