We make it a point to stop in Sayulita for these tacos every time we are in the area! Don’t go here for the service (because it’s slow), but go for the food! Fish tacos are the best and the spicy salsas are amazing! Super...More

That’s it - the best taco I’ve ever had - cooked to perfection, light, fresh and cheap! There’s plenty to choose from in this area but look no further. Shrimp, or local fish - yum
