Great tacos for the price

Diego's is a family owned taco stand I visited 3 times while in Cozumel last week. The Food was Excellent, staple Mexican lunch-type food for a very reasonable price. The family who cooked and waited on me was very friendly.

This is a very good place to eat either after landing or before taking off from airport. We checked our luggage in at the terminal and then walked out of the double doors down past the round about traffic circle. It is less that 50 feet down the road after you get off of the airport property. We had beef... More

This place is right across the way from the airport. If you are starving when you land or want a bite before you take off this is a far better choice than anything offered for sale at the airport. A better value too

We walked right out the airport and down the street to Diego's to get our taco fix right off the bat. Service is great and the food is wonderful.

Always our first and last stop when we visit Cozumel! Nidia and Eric take good care of you and offer tasty, reasonably priced, authentic food with a smile and friendly conversation. Do yourself a favor, take a trip across the street from the airport and enjoy this taco stand.

We stayed down south making it difficult to include Diego's in our normal routine but on our last day before checking our luggage we finally stopped by Diego's. Some of the best tacos I've ever had and the guacamole was to die for.

These were by far the BEST tacos we had in Cozumel! On our way to the airport we asked our taxi driver to join us for lunch. We ordered the freshly made guacamole with chips, fish taco platter and pork taco platter. We were pleasantly surprised...after looking past the ambience. The waiter was friendly and the food was out quickly!... More
