Fun place, great food

We went to Perico's with a group of 13 people, (we started with 11, but ran into some people we didn't know and invited them along). Everyone had a great time with the conga line, staff joking around and the little band entertaining all of us, they even let one of our group sit in on drums for La... read more

It was a great experience! We were off season, so it was not crowded, it was just us and another party of 5 people. We did not eat, thus I can not say anything about the quality of the food, but drinks were great. The waiters were very friendly and with great sense of humor. At the end we ordered... More

No visit to Cancun should be without a dinner here. First, a side trip away from the huge hotels and into the actual city is useful. The restaurant's ambiance is crazy, over-the-top and wild. Food is good. Music and entertainment (of which all guests are part of) is terrific.

Used to go to this place every time I went to Cancun. Why? Because it was always a great time as well as great food. And the more people there, the better the excitement. The staff always put on a show. On my last visit, the food was still great, but the party atmosphere was not even close to what... More

A hidden gem! This place used to be THE spot in Cancun for decades with a line out the door any given night of the week. It closed down for a couple of years but re-opened recently and not a thing has changed. Perricos doubles as an excellent restaurant and even more so an entertainment venue. Great food, lively decorations,... More

Great restaurant in downtown Cancun! The food was delicious and the ambience was a lot of fun. It was a major hit with the family. Our waiter was funny and Arturo the photographer/magician was awesome. He baffled our table with some great card tricks and sent us home with some great photo memories. A Cancun bucket list.

this is a must in cancun. there is music to eat by, so it is not banging and not too loud. The waiters are also comedians and entertainers. It is good to go with a few friends, old or new. The food was plentiful and not expensive.

By far the best little cantina in Mexico. Fireworks from the moment you enter and sit on a bar stool that is a saddle. The dinner choices are many and as Mexican as can be. Eat, drink and be merry, the show starts after dessert. If you can't have fun here you must be in a coma - when you... More
