We really enjoyed eating at the Blue Gecko Cantina. We walked along Avenida Kukulkan from the Marriott CasaMagna and were not disappointed. Its a small open-air venue that had excellent food.

Relaxing experience with decently priced beverages. The service was good and the place was clean. We were asked if we would like more drinks throughout our experience. Pleasant and would recommend others to come and visit this bar!

This food is delicious. Atmosphere is great too. Can't beat the price, especially for the quality you are getting. Won't regret it. (Tried the: Texas Taco, Korean BBQ Taco, Jalapeno Poppers, and of course the Guac, all amazing!)
