Fantastic local flavors!

We recently visited Akumal and searched for great, authentic Mexican food. We really like places that locals frequent, but also want to make sure that it is safe for our foreigner bellies. Ultimo Maya is a fantastic restaurant in Akumal Pueblo. It is worth making the trip over the bridge to the Pueblo. The seafood is amazing, especially the Ceviche.... More

Generous portions, good quality home style meal in Akumal pueblo. Cross the bridge for friendly atmosphere, yummy food and people watching. Ceviche, ribs and cilantro fish were muy bueno!

We have been visiting Akumal for 15 years. Restaurants come and go in the Akumal Pueblo, but I hope this one stays! We stopped at the Pueblo for lunch before settling in at our condo. We were really happy that we made this our first lunch of the week. I started out with a very tasty Mohito. The four of... More

We wanted to get away from the beach hotel zone at Akumal beach and went into the town across the bridge. It's only a block or two over the bridge on the left. The owner Alfredo is an educated man and very nice! As of the review he has only been in Akumal 10 months. Fish tacos were 70 pesos... More

I am writing this review laying on the couch digesting the best meal my family and I have had in all of our travels in Mexico. Did I eat too much? Yes, but only because I lacked the will power to stop! We started with some corn chips and guacamole, all made right in the restaurant . My kids had... More

Stumbled upon this friendly homely place whilst looking for a quick bite on our way home after the beach. The pork ribs were lovely and tender, and great with the Margarita. We enjoyed the prompt arrival of our order and Alfredo's attentive service.

His conviction of bringing fresh. great, consistant dishes & with hands on service to this little town of Pueblo Akumal was a nice surprise! His... More

We stopped in for an early dinner after a day of running errands and stocking up our condo with groceries. The staff, cooks, waiters and waitress were very attentive, very friendly and very helpful. They had wonderful margaritas, excellent fish tacos and great chips and salsa. Would definitely stop in again on our next trip to the area.

This was the first stop on our Akumal vacation and we will go back before we leave! The fish tacos were fresh and delicious. They also had the best Margarita in the area! You will not be disappointed!
