Pleasant location at the malecón, near the sea, excellent margarita´s, good food, great staff! Thank you Pedro you´re fast and sharp! Only little complain is when they have live music, the sound is to LOUD! Making it impossible to have a conversation with friends, if i wanted live (LOUD) music i would go to a concert! Keep in mind we... More

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

Best frozen drinks? Just might be! Location is somewhat crowded but the service was good, margaritas (cougarita, how clever) are HUGE and taste better than at Wendy downtown. Portion sizes of the food are American, we're european so we left most of it. Too bad. Taste was good!

We put this place on our list after reading several reviews on this site. I'm glad we did. Nico was awesome. He made sure we sat where we could enjoy a nice breeze & made several suggestions on the menu. The guac was wonderful (some of the best we had in Cozumel.). My husband took one of Nico's recommendations and... More

So the sign at the "Thirsty Cougar" says "Boozery". Well they do have the BEST frozen drinks on the island but I think a lot of peeps don't know how great the food is! Don't let the "Bar" image fool you. STOP AND EAT. Niko and Peter will take great care of you. Oh and did I mention they will... More
