Fish Tacos - Taco Crawl Stop 3

Make it a point to find this place. Fish Taco. Shrimp Taco. Pick a sauce. Have fun. I am partial to the shrimp taco. Don't expect fancy but do expect great tacos. I think I could sit here for hours!

Ordered a number of appetizers and beer here, and the food was just okay. Lettuce wrap tacos were nice, but the coconut shrimp appetizer we ordered was way overcooked and far too bready.

I have been coming to PDC every year for the past 6 years. I first discovered Los Aguachiles 3 years ago and hands down, it's my favorite spot. Their new location is super convenient but more crowded. My go-to order is the tuna tostada and the mixed ceviche. Everything is so fresh and delicious, you can't go wrong.

Great food, less touristy... Would definitely eat here again, just bear in mind they close early. But definitely great!

Nothing fancy but consistently fantastic! Their tacos are great but my favorite is the octopus, truly amazing!!! I highly recommend Los Aguachiles, they have two locations in Playa and one in Cancun.

We came here for lunch and was really impressed by the extremely fresh mexican seafood dishes. Must haves are the ceviches and tostadas...probably the best I've had anywhere. It was packed with locals which says a lot.

All the tacos, ceviches, cocteles ... are delicious but the services is a bit slow... so expect to wait a bit. There is a waiter... his name i think is Josue... he is Excelet!

Lite meal, delicious snd fresh. We had issues with communication and an incorrect tab. Not sure we'd eat there again based on the bill issues and inability to communicate effectively.
