My husband and I like to try out authentic and local eateries whenever we travel and Los Aguachiles was recommended to us by our private Chichen Itza tour driver, who is a Playa resident. We loved it so much we came back a second time before we left for home. It's a no frills place, which makes... read more

Ate here after having experienced several other wonderful local (off the tourist grid) spots. My kids wanted seafood and it is right across the street from our apartment. I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the experience and food. The tortilla chips tastes stale and their sauces were unappealing. We ordered a variety of shrimp and pork tacos. While the food was...

We arrived in Playa mid day and my 14yr old son was dying to have some seafood. I asked the staff at our hotel if a mid range seafood restaurant was close by and they suggested Aguachilies. This place looks like a bar but upon further inspection it is just a small taco stand right off the sidewalk. My husband... More

We were a table of almost 20 people. We ordered Fish Tacos, Tuna Tortas, Ceviches, Pork Tacos, etc... Everything was really good, although If I return I would order A LOT OF FISH TACOS, TUNA TORTILLAS and PORK TACOS; Those were definitely THE BEST!!! Also, they have an amazing range of great sauces!

We found this place on Trip advisor. The reviews we read were excellent and it didn't disappoint. They offer some complimentary taco shells to start, try the green cilantro sauce on them, it's delicious. I try to eat healthy when I am here, and avoid too many carbs. It isn't easy to do in Playa. I eat here often!! We... More

I was recommended this place by a local and I must admit when I first looked at the menu I thought I was going to be disappointed. SO WRONG. This place pumps out awesome food and is a bit hidden and serene. The fish filet with rice and mango sauce might just change your life

I ordered to start a grilled fish which really was not grilled but cooked on the pan and was very greasy so I changed for shrimp tacos and... More

This restaurant had the best food I had in the Riviera Maya region. Fish tacos, Tostadas, Seviche, Guacamole-use Tamarind sauce and green sauce (forgot what it was, but exceptional!) Would go back there just to eat here
