The tacos here are more like taquitos and had good flavor. The fajitas and quesadillas are just OK. Not bad but just not great. If you go here, it is an experience however I would not go out of my way.

This was a great find thanks TripAdvisor! Once you see the police station in the Pueblo turn right and it will be down one block. It closes at 8 p.m. not 9. This is family owned and they take pride in the restaurant. My son said it was the best beef tacos he's ever had. I had a Mexicana quesadilla... More

Based on all the Tripadvisor reviews (and because we really wanted a change of pace from the touristy restaurants on the Akumal/beach side of town), we swung by Taco Maya for breakfast. We really, really wanted to like it to support businesses on the "other side" of town. The interior was clean and cute. The cooking area is out in... More

We asked the taxi driver to take us to the best Tacos place in the Akumal Puebla and this did not disappoint. I had quesadillas and my friend had 3 steak Tacos. Both came with guacamole. Super good and you must try this place and try the flavoured waters. Yum, yum.

Family restaurant one block off of the main street in Akumal Pueblo. Restaurant was recommended by a local and did not disappoint. We were the only tourists, however, many community members came in to the restaurant for take out. Our tacos were delicious!
