Nothing fancy here just great cheap tacos. Located just outside the entrance of PA in the building next to la gas. We had deep fried shrip tacos and they were delish! 2 dor 38 pesos (jan 2017) so super cheap if looking for a meal thats much less expensive than anything in PA!

Burgers were ok. Fish was overfried. Cevicge had nice flavor but considered more of lettuce than anything else.

We have lived in PA for 9 years and eat there 1x month. Recently, prices have increased alot, 30+ peso/taco (still a good value for USD exchange, but not for locals),and the quality is not as good. The most recent visit, it was slow, normal right now, low season, but there was minimal everything. Obviously, they turn the gas down... More

A small popular homey restaurant. Very cheap (the prices in the photo here are not updated) and the attitude & service were kind.

We arrived in Cancun at noon Sunday, rented a car and made the drive towards Akumal. Aventuras is on the way, we were hungry and thirsty, so we stopped in. We ordered... More

We were here two years ago, and I did not forget it. It did not let me down this time! I had the fish/coconut tacos. They were tremendous! I ordered 2 and could have been good with 1. I did not realize that there was going to be two huge pieces of fish on each one. They didn't even fit... More

This is a tiny place next door to the gas station at the entrance to Puerto Aventuras. If you're looking to eat before heading out for an afternoon, or are hungry after hitting the beach or cenotes, I definitely recommend stopping. It's a favourite stop for dive groups and professional divers after a cenote trip, and you'll usually find a... More

We were a week in PA and we came here 3 times. The shrimp is one of the best I have ever had. The price is very affordable. Definitely a must. It is outside the gates on the right side, next to the gas station. Nice walk.....

I live in the Mayan Riviera area and have eaten a lot of fish tacos so I have a pretty good basis for comparison. The fish tacos at Paco Taco are heavily battered, and then deep fried (similar to something you would order at Long John Silvers in the States). Basically, it's fast food. The food isn't bad if this... More
