The best places to eat in Lázaro Cárdenas

Ciudad Lázaro Cárdenas


Lázaro Cárdenas is Mexico’s second largest port, thanks to the fact that the city welcomes business travelers with open arms. If you are in Lázaro Cárdenas, make sure you try the mouthwatering, extraordinarily fresh seafood from the Pacific, with the delicious local seasoning.

You'll find a variety of fish to choose from such as sea bass, sole or mouthwatering marlin, either fried or baked. There is no shortage of seafood either: lobsters with sauce, clams au gratin, breaded shrimp and oysters. Together with a range of seafood cocktails and fish soup. Here they use coconut in breaded seafood and candy-definitely worth a try. To eat the best seafood, travelers recommend El Güero, La Langosta and La Palapa, whether you’re on a business trip or vacation. If meat is your thing, we recommend Parrilla de Casablanca.

We recommend

  • For something really unique, take a trip to the Pier of Culture and the Arts to see the Albatross drawbridge, the only one of its kind in Latin America.
  • Take one day of your stay in Lázaro Cárdenas to discover Michoacán's wonderful coast. Azul Beach, just a few kilometers from the city, offers a full range of services.
