Fresh seafood at Fred’s House Seafood Market & Grill in Cancun

Where can one find fresh seafood in Cancun?  There are plenty of restaurants serving fresh seafood, I suppose.  One of those many, for sure, is Fred’s House Seafood Market & Grill.  Fred’s House is a stand-alone, casual, seafood restaurant in the Hotel Zone, right across from the J W Marriott Hotel.   While it is a […]
