How do you say, "Ahoy!" en Español? We'd start with uttering the words,"La Jaivita," which also happens to be a local restaurant specializing in scrumptious seafood like oysters on the half shell, shrimp gumbo, mahi mahi, aguachiles and more. They feature beachy speciality drinks from a full bar, as well as a massive platter called El Marinero that must be seen and savored to be believed!
