After visiting a cenote we were hungry and they suggested Nativo. We took their advise and we were glad we did!! Excellent food and smoothies at affordable prices. Excellent customer service and nice atmosphere. I would definitely eat here again. Thanks Nativo!

Sadly I was mesmerized by the colorful building and the beautiful fruit sitting outside so we stopped in as a family of five hungry for 🥞 breakfast. We had four orders of hotcakes w sandwich ham and a platter of fruit not with toppings just...of the house, 3 cups of coffee and there are no refills allowed btw and our total was $31 US dollars 💵. The exchange rate was 16 really.. there was not even running water to wash your hands in...McDonald’s is better than this place...More

The wait staff is rude!! This place is known for breakfast, but they don’t have coffee available at 10:00 am.

Best Mexican food you'll ever eat in a great atmosphere . Two (2) locations in Playa Del Carmen. The best fresh juices and smoothies made in front of your eyes and traditional Mexican food "TO DIE FOR" at unbelievable prices. The SOUP "NATURAL" is a...bowl of the best "GOODNESS" on earth which is stocked full with fresh veggies and you can add your choice of BEEF, SHRIMP, FISH, CHICKEN or simply keep it Vegetarian. 63 Pesos ( about $3 USD ) and you can only eat half so be prepared to take the other half home for later or tomorrow. Also try the "CHILAKILES" with red sauce ... You'll be backMore

This is a restaurant, but you can also drink here refreshing juices and yoghurt drinks. Everything is fresh and you have a lot of combinations. For 36 - 38 pesos you have a nice 700 ml drink and for only 40 - 43 pesos one...liter! The place is nice and inviting. Go there when it is sunny and hot. No problem in Mexico!More

I only had a smoothie here , but it was very large, tasty and inexpensive. The service was fast and friendly, cant say for the food, but if you need a quick cool down from the heat, here is a great place for smoothies

Someone recommend that s place to grab a quick morning juice. It’s like having a Big Gulp full of fruits and veggies. Almost worth selling my juicer they are so cheap buying these instead and better than what I can do.

Not an easy restaurant to find as it is tucked further away from Playa del Carmen's tourist areas. It is one of two that have been a huge success with locals. Breakfasts include delicious and well served Mexican and international options. It is however the...incredibly creative range of juices, including energetics, high in iron, with milk or yoghurt and veggie options, that draw the crowds. If you are an adventurous traveler and want to experience a local favorite then take the time to at least buy a juice here on your way to or from the beach. Access is easy, the restaurant is comfortable if you want to stay for a while and the prices are very reasonable.More

I’m Mexican. Trust me not a good reference for Mexican food. Chilaquiles tasted bad. Also soup. Club sandwich bad!
