“Good Fish Taco at local street prices.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Lots of good large pieces of fresh local fish. Many condiments to add and make up your taco to taste. Just outside the Puerto Aventuras Gated Community.....a very casual, authentic local eatery.

“It's "Taco Paco", not "Paco Taco", but either way it's great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

To confirm the name, just look at the photo of the menu.

Taco Paco makes superb fried shrimp and fish tacos, their specialty. They do have other kinds, but those are the reason we've been following them from various locations over the years to their current spot. In addition to the tacos themselves they have some sauces and toppings that are unusual in the region, such as peanut or tamarind salsas.

We've made trips from Cozumel just to get tacos at Taco Paco.

“Great shrimp tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Flavor was perfect, lots of great sauces and toppings to choose from.
Pickled jalapeños with mango, coleslaw, cucumber, tamarind sauce, a few strengths of salsa, red onions. Mmmm.
The second time we went, at 12:30, they ran out of shrimp. Sad face.
Clean washrooms too.

“Taco heaven!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

A local recommended this place for the best fish taco's in the area. Man, he wasn't kidding! Freshest, tenderest battered fish you will ever taste. They have a 'topping bar' where you must try the cole slaw and tamarind sauce on top of your tacos...sooooooooo good. Great stop for lunch. The best! It is all outside seating, and yes, it can be hot, but when you taste the food you will forget that you are sitting next to a gas station and a Subway shop...well worth the stop!
Under $2 for one order of taco's, which is actually enough fish for 2 taco's and comes with 2 corn tortilla's and all the free toppings you want! Really good guac too!
