Silly fun and food isn't bad either

Pericos is downtown Cancun and somewhat hard to find. Make an effort to find it and plan to have some " silly" fun moments The waiters are entertainers besides being your server.

My friend and I were staying outside of the Hotel Zone in a more residential area, and we took a walk to stumble upon these two donkey statues outside of a restaurant. Cancun was really just a long stopover for us, but we decided to take advantage of our time and have a little fun. As soon as we walked... More

This was my first meal in Cancun and it did not disappoint. The waiter was so friendly, funny, and attentive, he even gave us a free drink coupon. Definitely go for the decor and positive energy. It's a really fun place! Food is good too!

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
