This was a very humble fish shack that opened in 1978 and was later remodeled, and now it’s not uncommon to see tour buses parked out front and a line of diners waiting to be seated. Prices have shot up accordingly and if you are looking for an authentic atmosphere this isn’t it, but El Hicaco does serve excellent seafood, and its beachfront setting is stellar.
