The Thirsty Cougar is right on the waterfront in beautiful downtown Cozumel Mexico. This is the second venture from the creators of Wet Wendy's Margarita House, only we kept everyone's favorite creations and added an unbeatable view and smaller format. If you're down for a week or just a day, you can't beat our kitchen or bar to deliver just what you need! We hope to see you soon, Jazmine, Niko, Leka, Carlos, Klara and Chad.

The mixed fish & shrimp ceviche was wonderful - cold, fresh & flavorful, served with an abundance of chips. The fish tacos were flavorful but the texture was too soft for my taste and they lacked a crunchy garnish. The giant margaritas made with real fruit are to die for...plus the location to the port and the people watching are... More

We wandered into the thirsty cougar in Cozumel - then came back several times. Interesting drinks, good food, and friendly staff.

Stopped for cocktails on a couple of afternoons while my wife shopped downtown Cozumel. Right on the main strip and great for watching the scene. Staff was very pleasant and the music was great. Recommend.

The frozen drinks are tall and the nachos are tasty. The only drawback is it is located on the corner on the Main Street. There is very little indoor seating. There are a few sidewalk tables. The servers are great.

My husband and I go to Cozumel often and have walked past this small corner restaurant on our way to and from town. They always play great music and it is right across from the waterfront. We decided it was time to try it for ourselves--especially after I read all the reviews about the Chocolate Peanut Butter Margarita!! Our experience... More

I had the best fish sandwich I have ever had in my life here. The prices were a little high but the view from you dining spot is incredible. It is located right on the water front.
