Good Tacos

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!

Come to La floresta to enjoy an authentic Fish Taco experience. They are perfectly cooked, very reasonably priced and worth the visit. The restaurant has a very authentic feel, non-pretentious, but serves the best seafood tacos I've had in a long time.

Normally I don' t like fried fish so much but these seafood-tacos are outstanding and even better are the ceviche, cocktails and aguachiles.

We've been wanting to go here for years, and finally made it happen last week, twice! Yeah it was that good. The tacos kinda remind us of Dr. Taco! If they only had the lobster tacos. We had both the shrimp and fish tacos, which are fried and delicious! We also had ceviche, which was pretty good as well. It... More

This is my first trip to La Floresta after many trips to Playa del Carmen. I have heard great hings about this place and they are all true. It is on the Federal Highway(307) , out of the way, but worth the trek. Where else can you buy shrimp, marlin, crab and fish tacos for only 20 pesos each. Not... More

The Shrimp Tacos are simply the best! so fresh and tasty, my friend had the fresh fish and said that that was the best he had ever had. It is right on 307 and well worth the look out for it.
