Welcome to La Buena Vida Restaurant and Bar… Welcome to The Good Life.

The original idea of La Buena Vida happened one night with a few friends sitting on the
shores of Half Moon Bay. They were wishing they had a place to hang out,
but there was nowhere to go.

Exactly six months later on February 15, 1996 La Buena Vida opened its doors.
(so to speak, dropped its rope).

From that day on La Buena Vida has been slowly growing, changing, evolving and
morphing into what it is today. It will continue to change, until it stops and
that will be the day it closes its rope.


Sit back; take your shoes off ( if you’re wearing them ).
Dig your feet in the sand and relax.

Just be. Enjoy. There is nothing that is more important than enjoying
this moment right now. This is the intention of La Buena Vida, live in the moment.
Look around. There is a lot to see.

Please try the fresh juices that are available to replenish and cleanse.

Quality cocktails are an order away to amp the vacation festivities. Margaritas!
We have a very extensive Tequila menu. Some of the best Tequilas in Mexico are
represented in the bar. Please try one of these very special sipping tequilas straight up in
a one and a half ounce shot glass.

We use only the highest quality ingredients in the preparation of our food. In keeping with
local traditions of the Yucatan Peninsula, fresh local spices and herbs flavor the typical
dishes of the area, providing an authentic experience of some of the best local Mexican
and Mayan cuisine available in the region.

La Buena Vida has continued its evolving process to include Recycling and the use of
Bioplastics and recycled / recyclable paper products in all possible areas. We also compost
our organic waste to create fertile soil used to replant and reforest the local area.

Over the years we have created many different community projects that range from adult
education for our local community, to a plant nursery offering free native plants to anyone who wants them. Yearly donations are made to a variety of charities and local community projects.

Enjoy this moment…
