The next time you are searching for seafood, and your expectations are high, get yourself to the nearest El Coleguito — there are three in the Banderas Bay area. Click HERE for more info.
A more perfect setting for a Sunday afternoon meal could not have been found anywhere else but at El Coleguita in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Perhaps the most beautiful view of the Bay had coupled with an amazingly generous seafood plate. The tequila poured, the gentle breeze wafted, and we dined.

Please, the next time you are searching for seafood on your plate, and your expectations are high, get yourself to the nearest El Coleguita — there are three in the Banderas Bay area — and really dine. Take your time. Enjoy the company of friends, and a plate of wonderful seafood accompanied by great service.

The menu offers a variety of seafood entrées, most for the price of $109 pesos. All come with complimentary seafood broth, salsa and tostadas, tequila that does not stop (yes, they just keep bringing complimentary bottles of tequila to the table), dessert of baked banana with cream sauce, and a Kahlua cocktail.

We spent Sunday afternoon watching the sailboats on the Bay, conversing with friends, and eating, eating, eating. I could not have thought of another place I would rather have been. My plate of Mahi Mahi covered with sautéed shrimp was more than I could eat.

My companions enjoyed Coconut Shrimp and Camarones al Mojo de Ajo. We left hours later when we could no longer eat or drink any more. What more can you ask for on a Sunday afternoon?
