Holy Molé! Cinco de Mayo in Clearwater

For some strange reason, you’re suddenly craving Mexican food and drink.  Tamales and tequila. Chimichangas and Corona. Suddenly you realize…it’s Cinco de Mayo! Party time!

The holiday is more popularly celebrated in the United States than in Mexico and has become associated with a recognition of Mexican-American culture. And while approximately 18 percent of Clearwater’s population is Hispanic or Latino, only a portion of that demographic is of Mexican descent.

Clearwater does have a number of outstanding places to enjoy this colorful culture’s food and drinks – and not all of them are Mexican!

For instance, Jimmy’s Fish House & Iguana Bar – located on Clearwater Beach – undoubtedly has the best views in this lineup.

Jimmy’s Fish House & Iguana Bar

With live entertainment seven days a week on a waterside deck, Jimmy’s is an exceptional setting for tropical beverages, tacos, quesadillas and more.

And did I mention the tortilla chips with crab dip? It’s so delicious, you won’t want to share!

Enjoy a number of Cinco de Mayo specials while feasting your eyes on the waterfront views. You may even spot some dolphins!
