We never would have gone in this place if it was not for the Tripadvisor reviews. From the outside, the Blue Gecko looks like a tiny, hole-in-the-wall bar. Until you are up close, you can’t even tell that they serve food. But we tried it for lunch, and it was great!! And then we went back for dinner, just as... More

Tacos with a twist. We stopped here for a quick, early lunch. The placed was jammed at 11:15 am and I can see why.... great food, drinks at reasonable prices. My husband had the bacon wrapped shrimp taco with habanero sauce and I had one of their specialty tacos with spicy chicken. VERY good! The whole time we were there,... More

It's on "the strip". A simple shack on the other side of the road opposite the second Oasis pyramid. We really enjoyed the food and the price was fair. Our host recommended the place and we weren't disappointed.

My wife and I are dibing next door so we decided to heck this place out. Mexico kitsch notwithstanding, this place was excellent! They roast their own chicken, and we both had roast chicken tacos. The corn on them was lovely, and the fresh corn tortilla awesome. Prices not bad, and the tacos are pretty big. Order one for an... More

My gf and I stopped in here with another couple, after experiencing some delicious Guacamole, drinks and food. We actually came back a couple days later. We were all-inclusive at our resort but were getting tired of the resort food by the end of the week. This definitely was a great location and friendly customers as well as workers here.

This place may throw you off because there is no indoors to eat. But man is the food great. We've eaten there several times on each trip we make to Cancun. And it's so nice that the owner remembers us. We even ate there when it was raining, we love it so much! Give it a try. If the owners... More

This little bar is right across the Grand Oasis Cancun, and a welcome break from this hotel's mediocre foods and drinks. It has great Caribbean atmosphere and decoration, funny inscriptions to lift up your mood, great drinks and food. Also, it has free WiFi (although the owner wouldn't like you to stay 2 hours updating your Facebook status over a... More

This is a great little find, within walking distance from the Royal Caribbean Resort. The owner is happy to talk with you and the tacos are extra good!

Blue Gecko is Right across from the street from the Grand Oasis hotel. I had some of the best food I have ever eaten in Cancun. The daily special my first visit was bacon wrapped shrimp burritos. They were fantastic. We ate there almost everyday during our trip and everything was really good. Free Wi-Fi worked just fine. Owner was... More
