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

My husband and I always stay at all inclusive resorts in Mexico, we were ready for a change of food- we wanted real authentic Mexican food. After searching around the world decided on taco mayo. I was little skeptical at the location when we pulled up but everyone was friendly. I had fish tacos and my husband had chorizo quesadillas-... 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! If you're staying in a resort in Akumal, you will need to use the pedestrian/bike bridge over... More

This place is off the beaten path in Akumal Pueblo but well worth finding. The fish, lamb and pork tacos were all amazing and our waitress was very helpful and a delight. The guacamole was also excellent. By the way when they say one of the two sauces for the chips is hot, you need to believe them! My three... More

Walked from resort, did some shopping and walked over the highway. Good tacos and cold beer served with care. Staff was friendly and welcoming. There was a large group of local coworkers meeting for a work celebration of some kind and laughing and enjoying themselves
