The best shrimp tacos!

We love the camaron (shrimp) tacos! The best we've ever had in Mexico! They are extremely low cost and delicious! I love the fact that they have takeout. My husband would hop on a bike, ride there and bring back a delicious meal of shrimp tacos and shrimp cocktails! Yummy!

We were introduced to the La Floresta over 4 years ago by a Mormon Missionary serving in the area. When we asked him the BEST fish tacos, he took us here. Don’t know that young man’s name, but I thank him every year when we come to the Playa Del Carmen area. This is by far the best food, and... More

La Floresta has been open in this location as long as I can remember, maybe 18 plus years. We go there once a week for a light lunch. Service is fast, you have your food within 5 minutes of sitting down. Not fancy by any means, but it is clean, fast and good. You also receive a basket of chips... More

The brande Shrimp cocktail was filled with so many shrimp. Enough for two. The shrimp tacks were great.

We went for lunch - easy to find, last “exit” on the bridge going south into town, immediately on your right. Open air, mostly locals. The four of us ordered two shrimp tacos (served plainly with five’ish lightly battered shrimp in single tortilla). Various jarred/other hot sauces, chips (with a bit of sesame to them), limes and pico de gallo... More

A little out of the way, frequented mostly by locals. We tried a variety of seafood and fish tacos, they were all good, especially the tempura fish tacos, they were very tasty and the prices are very reasonable, the complementary pico de gallo and chips is really good here.

La Floresta has really good shrimp but very little else..it is off the normal tourist path which I like..the dining area was a bit dirty even by Mexican standards but I could eat the shrimp tacos all day.

We were welcomed and had excellent service. Menu very simple, which is nice. Ordered 3 fish & 3 shrimp tacos and a couple of Sols. Yummy. The shrimp cocktails looked good that we want to try next time.

Recommended by a local. The fish is fried but very fresh. Service is quick & friendly. At night they serve meat tacos. Cash only. Definitely worth taking some pico de gallo home!
