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've been eating at Taco Paco since they opened in 2005. We're in Puerto Aventuras evere year, and Akumal, also. Taco Paco is so simple, but so AWESOME!!! 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

Local favorite, in a small commercial building next to Pemex station, just south of the gates to enter the Puerto Aventuras community, on the frontage road of the highway. Owned by a nice German man from Berlin who bought the place 20 or so years ago, and a real find, thanks to a local chef's recommendation. Good variety of menu... More
