On a quick trip to Cancun we will stay at the AI resorts to avoid the planning and scheduling of being in Mexico, but I have to say that food at the AI resorts gets boring on about day 2... Good thing Calypsos is close! This is our 3rd time coming here and I think the food is amazing. The... More

I really like seafood and don't like spicy food, in Calypso I found both requirements. It was very close to our hotel and thanks to TripAdvisor recommendation we got there. Not a chip place, but worth it. I ordered Lobster and Shrimps dish and my husband ordered 2 tacos, also we had 2 cocktails. The bill was around 900-1000 pesos.... More

My family has been going to Calypso for the past several years. We enjoyed the fresh fish and the good tacos. Felipe is always very warm and welcoming! This year the prices seemed to increase from past years.

Decided to visit based on TA reviews and Calypso did not disappoint! We had delicious, fresh fish and shrimp tacos and beautiful steak fajitas. Lovely friendly service and off the very hectic and very americanised main road. Worth the detour if you're looking for something more authentic and Mexican, and are glad not to be offered free shots and encouraged... More

Came in during our surface interval between morning and night dives at a nearby dive shop. The friendly and calm welcome was a nice change from the other vendors constantly shouting for business. We were helped along with our broken Spanish and then allowed to finish our order in English. Really enjoyed the tacos con arrichera (nicely marinated, sliced beef).... More

During happy hour we took two drinks, but we paid for both them.. they do not accept credit card. They exchange usd to pessos 1:16. There are much better places around than this. Food was not good :(.

Love this place. I could not wait for my next Cancun visit to stop and see Felipe and get some of his fabulous ceviche. The service is great, prices are reasonable and the food is yummy. If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place!
