somewhere for good Mexican Food at Akumal

We are staying at GBP in May and this will be my third trip to this resort. this time we are planning on getting the collective to Akumal beach for the day.

Is there anywhere that we could have a nice lunch? Although the food at the hotel is good, we have found that there isn't much that is particularly Mexican so we wanted to take the opportunity to try something that is maybe more like what the locals eat to try the real Mexican experience.

Thanks

Caroline

We really enjoyed a lunch at La Bueno Vida. For 2 people, we ordered 1 order of fish tacos and 1 order of ceviche, and shared it. Big plates of food. They also have great fruit smoothie drinks (virgin) but we ordered a shot of rum to go in them and one drink was plenty. Very good and well worth the trip. Ocean front, outdoors, sand floor, very windy!

I love Loncheria! Love sitting at the outdoor counter. Food is so good and cheap! My parents have been going to Akumal for 20+ years. This place is basic, but awesome!

If you miss LA CUEVA DEL PESCADOR you have missed a great meal. Ceviche, fish filet, fish tacos, etc.

These people are the fishermen, hence fresh fish.

Loncheria excellent. 3 Acapulenses down the road on the left side is the MOST authentic Mexican food.

Imelda's , just behind the CEA , does a small but great choice of authentic food for a reasonable price .
