Default I'm looking for some good cheap lobster!

I will be going on a tour to Chacoban the first week of January, but while in Mahjuhal, I'd love to be able to get a good, affordable lobster tail. ANy suggestions and prices are welcomed!

Nope. Lobster doesn't come from that region. They do have wonderful things made from conch, though!

There is a local lobster that is served. Somewhat of a problem has developed as more travelers come to Mahajual, as the demand is outstriping the reproduction. The locals are trying, somewhat, to stop harvesting during the reproductive months.
