We went "taco hopping" one of the days during our 10 day stay. After trying really good tacos al around, we got to Los Aguachiles. We had the most amazing shrimp tacos for an awesome price! Can't wait to go back later this month.

So glad I found this place thru another reviewer. I ordered their house specialty, the grilled octopus served over rice. It was sooooooo good. I will always eat there when we go to Playa. It was fresh and cooked to perfection.

Went their last night, total of 6 adults and 2 children. Very informal atmosphere with white plastic chairs. Waitress was new. Ordered a few appetizers and lots of tacos for the group. Children had fish sticks and fries. Brought one child's meal shortly and the other had to wait about 15 minutes for her meal. Brought more beers than were... More

While Los Aquachiles isn't the cheapest seafood option in town, it is among the freshest and tastiest and frequented by locals and tourists alike. There are now 2 locations in central Playa to choose from but we went to the one listed here. If you are a lover of seafood then you will be a lover of this place. Also,... More
