The place is nicely settled in an alley way that has an incredible breeze the entire time! No need to sit inside, let alone it would be hotter. Really a beautiful setting right on the water, close to downtown, and really great service. They are interested in hearing about where you are from and telling you a little bit about... More

We stumbled - literally as we had been at the tequila place a few doors down - across this place on the corner. The staff was very friendly and there was live music playing. It was a fun time and we would probably go back.

Great food, drinks, friendly staff, street music. The seafood is fresh and delicious. We went back a couple of times and must have tipped well, they remembered us well

Great corner bar on the main drag in Cozumel. Frozen Margaritas were HUGE and really good! Prices for drinks were fair and the drinks are made with an extra kick! This place is great for people watching! If your in Cozumel check it out!

We came into Puerta Langosta on Cozumel on our cruise ship and the Thirsty Cougar is a few blocks from the pier. We had a few beers and the chicken flautas as well as the complimentary chips and salsa. My husband is wary of eating fresh produce in Mexico, so the lettuce on top of the flautas was a bit... More

This place is a jewel. It looks like just a bar but the food is really good too. The servers were fun, friendly, and entertaining. We went there like four times this trip. I will definitely make this a regular stop on my trips to the island.

This place is great! Probably the best frozen drinks on the Island. You have to try the Brains. Peter and the staff are top notch
