I got the 2 mixed tacos. I chose 2 chicken and they are delicious! You must go to this restaurant and try to sit near the front so you can see all the action!

We loved everything about this place - especially the outstanding vegetarian options on the menu! Lilian our host was wonderful and went out of her way to ensure my husband was catered for with his vegetarian diet. So many amazing food options and great drinks too! We will be back

Food was good, nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about. Margaritas were wonderful, and very strong! Easy locations within walking distance from everywhere

My husband and I were wandering on 5th looking for a restaurant when he suggested La Vagabunda because it was always busy, both at dinner and lunch time. I'm so glad we chose it because it was one of the best meals we've had in Playa del Carmen. I had a vegetarian plate and they had no problem eliminating mushrooms... More

Super food!!!! Loved the tuna appetizer and Shrimp tacos. Excellent service. One of our best meals here in Playa. The waitstaff is very attentive and friendly. Comfortable outdoor seating under the shade trees and a cold beverage beat the Caribbean heat even in August.
