Beach @ El Dorado Maroma

This is a beautiful white sand beach overlooking absolutely gorgeous shades of blue and turquoise Caribbean Sea. There are palapas beach beds to escape the sun, relax or just lay beside your companion. It would be impossible to miss the two over-water Sky Massage Cabanas, which also serve as a private dinner option during the evening. Four days a week between noon and 2pm, chef's prepare a very special lunch. Wednesday, for example they prepare a huge Taco spread. Thursday is the Fish market. Fresh caught fish arrives by boat. You select the fish of your choice and the chef prepares it right there while you help yourself to all of the side dishes. We enjoyed a complete Red Snapper which was simply amazing, not to mention extremely fresh. Friday is BBQ day under the Palapa. And Saturday is Paella Day, which we had the pleasure to enjoy. We're pretty sure the kitchen sink was not in there, but seemingly everything delicious was.
