If you have several meals in Cozumel -- especially the kind where you're just trying to have an inexpensive, safe meal -- then put this on your list. It is similar to Mr. Taco, but some items taste better and some taste worse, though most are more expensive. Try to sit in the "garden" section instead of the front of... More

An easy bike ride from our rental and just 6 blocks east of the plaza was this small relatively quiet tacqueria. Bilingual wait staff were very helpful at explaining the menu. Food was tasty (muy saboroso) and really inexpensive. Enjoy!

SO GOOD - $26 for three of us, including beers. Get the Gringo tacos: 3 meet, cheese & onion small open face tacos. Add a beer, and you're in business.

Are you up for Tru Mexican challenge? el Pique offers the best tacos in the island. They have a great variety, food is excellent and prices are cheap! This is a clean place, great service and delicious food. Eat as a local!

Open from 7 PM till 1 AM. TA has the closing time incorrect. Best Pastor we had on the island, as others have stated. Make the walk away from town and then stop for paletas on your way back. You will most likely be the only tourist in the joint. The place is hopping all night with locals dining in... More

Inexpensive, clean, and delicious, this favorite Taco spot is a hit with locals and tourists. Open in the evening.

The tacos are awesome along with the other food. I never trust a Cozumel restaurant that has any English on the menu - it's probably overpriced and not so good. This gem is located about 4 blocks east of the Plaza and is worth the walk.

Once we discovered El Pique, we went there for dinner every single day. My boyfriend and I both LOVED their tacos. El Pastor were our favorite, but we tried many different ones, and all of them were great. They do beef, pork, chicken and many varieties. The last day my BF discovered the torta of pastor pork and he still... More
