Fun date night.

Live music and entertainment including a conga line through the restaurant right into the street, the staff held up traffic so the conga line could pass.

This restaurant is fun for couples. The drinks and food were great and presentation was lovely. Live music and entertainment including a conga line through the restaurant right into the street, the staff held up traffic so the conga line could pass. A little expensive but worth it for the silly fun, would recommend.

Had lunch at Perico's with three others. Our waiter provided great service and was very entertaining. There is plenty to see at Perico's and several photo spots for kids. They're really into the Day of the Dead stuff there. I found it VERY expensive. Lunch for four of us (two of us shared nachos) with 7 margaritas was $125 USD... More

Everyone who visits Cancun should get out of the resort and visit Perico's! It is fun for the whole family or for friends or even for a lonely couple! It is old-fashioned fun in El Centro where there once were many family-owned restaurants and bars. I took my friends for a photo opportunity, but they ended up having a fabulous... More

Went here the first night in cancun. Had a blast. It was without a doubt the best time we had at dinner, the prices weren't the best, but the atmosphere more than made up for it. Food was great also. If you want the authentic Mexican resteraunt experience , then this is a must stop.

I agree with another reviewer ~ sometimes getting out and away from the All-Inclusive routine is necessary when you often visit Cancun. Perico's is a fun choice for you and your group. It is NOT the place to go to if you are looking for a quiet, fine-dining, romantic evening. Just a great place to be a tourist and let... More

Had an absolute blast here in April! It's not the cheapest place in the world - by far! But we had an amazing night after a long day! The meal was very nice ( we had the fajitas, enchiladas and steak) and the drinks were very well made! However the main reason I would recommend anyone to come here would... More

Stopped today around 330 pm. We each ordered a coke and split a pastor nachos. Food was good also came with chips and salsa on the side. All was good, service included until the bill came. Was 323 pesos or 45 usd. At the time the exchange was posted as 14.2 to 1. As I remember 170 for nachos, 3... More

15 years ago, hubby proposed to me after an evening at Perico's so had to go back. This place was still a very fun and entertaining evening... but it was empty! I can't figure it out. The band was great, the food very good, service excellent, and the tricks they pull keep you laughing. It just feels a little awkward... More

We went with the family ages 4 to 65. The entertainment is spectacular The food was great too! This was our second trip to Paerico's and it didn't disappoint. I love getting out of the hotel zone and going to a fun Mexican restaurant, there was a Marracci band and so much more. It keeps everybody entertained the whole night.... More
