One free beer for 2 tacos

It is a tough competition for the best taco in Playa del Carmen, still I believe La Floresta wins by far. Their one free beer for each 2 tacos ordered can't be beaten. Besides that, they have the best Taco de camarones, the best Marlin Taco and the best Jaiba (Crab) Taco I've eaten so far. Even the... read more

Many places try to over complicate the simple taco, that is not needed, if the baseline ingredients are perfect. La Floresta have delicious fish, shrimp and crab tacos, seafood cocktails and ceviches of the highest quality, and very reasonable prices.

We had the fish tacos in the afternoon and came back the next day for the Carne asada and chorizo tacos. Super delicious, and the location is immediately next to the off ramp. This place is great.

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
