Perico's is a very entertaing venue. The local artwork is outstanding and the building is a museum to the past. Perico's staff goes beyond great in their effort to entertain their guests. Perico's isn't a regular stop for our annual pilgrimage to Cancun. Meals are served hot and well prepared with a generous amount of fanfare. Check it out!

Downtown Cancun is a Cantina/ restaurant that has marimba band and is fun because they have patron participation. Angel keeps things lively as do the waiters. Food was good. We had seafood platter. Wise to take a taxi there. Our taxi driver waited for us. A very fun evening. Nice to get away from all-inclusive! Of course it isn't what... More

A family member used to come here years ago, so we thought we'd try it out. Easy bus trip into downtown Cancun from Hotel Zone. Then you need to take a taxi or walk a few blocks. We arrived at an early dinner time and were the only people in the restaurant. The staff was pulling pranks the moment we... More

First time in Cancun, and I read some review about top 10best restaurant Cancun of USA Today online. Going to this restaurant was the biggest mistake of the whole trip. first of all, they don't have dance or show during off season and weekday. Secondly, the food was ok but overpriced "more experience than Hotel Zone". Third, good luck getting... More

Great food! Great service! I cannot remember our servers name, but he went above and beyond! If you're looking for a place to eat outside of your resort, this is a great spot.

We were instantly attracted to this restaurant because of the crazy skeletons around. We got sat down and immediately watched all the fun unfold around us - the waiters were crazy, playing with prank items and dolls. They were all dressed up too, being silly with all the customers. Food wise: I didn't think much of mine to be honest,... More

We came here because my husband had come to Perico's 13 years before when on a family vacation with his parents, so he insisted we had to come here while in Cancun for our anniversary. When we came in, there were only two other tables taken on a Saturday night, it was quite dead. We ordered our food and drinks... More

A must if you are in Cancun.....the food, the music, the atmosphere, the wait staff....a touristy place? yes....but that's what makes it so much fun!!!! We found Pericos 3 years ago and we were sorry we hadn't gone years earlier! DO NOT expect a quiet romantic dinner! You won't get it!! Bring your sense of adventure and fun and play... More

Recommended to Perico's by hotel. A very good recommendation!. Service, food, and atmosphere very good!. Staff went out of their way to attend to needs and create an enjoyable atmosphere and experience. Went early so the Mariachis, etc. weren't yet performing but you cold see from the TV/video, that the "party atmosphere" really gets going here!
