Positioned near the middle of Tulum, Acabar is a logical choice for travelers thinking about spending some time seeing this town and areas nearby. If the idea of Middle Eastern food combined with Tex-Mex sounds like perfection, make it a goal to eat at this restaurant at some point during your Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean vacation. <p>You might not be sure where you are when you see the decor in Acabar, but it sure isn't Mexico.
