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.

Best drink location in Cozumel!

Thirsty cougar has great drink and food options. The frozen drinks and el catera margarita are awesome. We make it a daily stop when in Cozumel on vacation. They have the best bartenders and wait staff we have encountered in our two trips.

We went to Cozumel with the intent of having killer drinks at this establishment. To bad after a few emails sent back and forth inquiring about good times to come visit. We decided to go on Sunday. You would think they would let you know that they are CLOSED on Sunday. Thanks for that little tidbit. I had been to... More

We actually heard about this place while watching the owners find a house on an HGTV show a few weeks before our trip. We walked by many times during our visit and decided to stop in one evening for a light meal. It's a fun setting right on the main drag and fun to sit and watch people. We had... More

The food and atmosphere were wonderful. Peter went out of his way to accommodate our family. The staff even assisted with our activities after our dining experience.

Great margaritas and service couldn't be better. Even the children enjoyed their virgin margaritas. We were even told to write down a playlist and they played our songs.

Stopped by while shopping during our cruise stop....how could you not stop after seeing those delicious frozen margarita's when passing by? Great place for a break and have a drink. Great service, good food, free wi-fi. Great people watching spot - although plenty will be watching you and asking about your drink!

The location is close to perfect and you get a nice cooling breeze coming in off the water at most times of the day. Like others have mentioned a good spot to unwind and people watch. The food was fine and reasonable priced but not going to win any Michelin stars anytime soon. Good attention by the bartenders rarely had... More

This was one of the only places we ate at 4 times in 10 days!!!! Perfect spot to have a tasty beverage and watch the people go by. Couldn't ask for a better setup.
