Review of Taco Maya

Reviewed 19 November 2016 via mobile

Dropped in here after hearing about its location on our wall back to town from the Monkey sanctuary. Went in unassuming and left 100% satisfied. We live in California and eat Mexican food almost daily, and this food takes the prize. The fish tacos are the best I've ever had, along with the carnitas and guacamole. The family is super friendly and shared their tacos Veracruz with us as we just happened to sit down prior to their meal time. This part of Akumal is rustic and really gives you a taste of authentic Mexico. It's a refreshing break from the tourists and foreign wealth on the the other side of the bridge and down the highway either way in Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Enjoy.

Possibly the best fish tacos I've ever had. The little old lady then brought us food from her personal dinner she was making for her family - I believe it was Mayan. Lovely family, awesome food!

We ended up at Taco Maya after asking a local about the best tacos in town. The food was great, very affordable, and as others have said, the portions are big! Taco Maya isn't fancy and it is a little harder to find than other restaurants in the pueblo because it's a block or two off the main drag. But it's well worth it, and we always like to get over to the pueblo at least a few times when we're in Akumal. Taco Maya is a good excuse to cross the highway and mingle with the locals.

The staff was kind, but their English is limited so if you don't speak Spanish, be prepared to point at the menu. It will work out fine, though. Pretty much everything is tasty.

We kept going back! We ate here 3 times. We had tacos, tacos dorados (rolled up and deep fried) as well as quesadillas. They were always busy and the service was quick and friendly. Food was delicious!

If you want some tasty local food, served up by friendly people you'll want to visit Taco Maya in the Akumal pueblo. We enjoyed our dinner and recommend getting off the tourist track and visiting places such as Taco Maya. The pork is delicious in a burrito.
