We ended up at Taco Maya after asking a local about the best tacos in town. The food was great, very affordable, and as others have said, the portions are big! Taco Maya isn't fancy and it is a little harder to find than other restaurants in the pueblo because it's a block or two off the main drag. But... More

We kept going back! We ate here 3 times. We had tacos, tacos dorados (rolled up and deep fried) as well as quesadillas. They were always busy and the service was quick and friendly. Food was delicious!

If you want some tasty local food, served up by friendly people you'll want to visit Taco Maya in the Akumal pueblo. We enjoyed our dinner and recommend getting off the tourist track and visiting places such as Taco Maya. The pork is delicious in a burrito.

Akumal is such an interesting Pueblo that we enjoy going there to eat. The food at Taco Maya is very reasonably priced and the serving sizes are quite generous. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The Lamb burritos are huge and stuffed with lamb. I will be going back to Mexico in a couple weeks and this will definitely... More

My husband heard about this local eatery and couldn't wait to go. They are known for both their pork and lamb tacos. They were delicious. Served with onion, cilantro and fresh corn tortillas. The staff was very nice and attentive. I would definitely go back.

We came once before and knew we had to be back. Me and my lady stopped by the other day this time during the day. Had no idea (since last time it was at night) that the place was like a little hacienda with the open air over the middle of the place. Food is excellent. The locals will be... More

Casual friendly atmosphere. Really nice fresh food. Guacamole, vegetarian burrito, quesadillas & fajitas were all yummy.

Ate here for lunch one day. The staff doesn't speak much English but we had no problem ordering our food. We ordered the pork, lamb, and fish tacos. The pork and lamb tacos were good. The fish tacos were GREAT! Definitely must try the fish tacos if you go here. They're also very generous with the amount of fish/meat that... More

I went here for take-out, but once I found it, I wish I had eaten lunch there as it is a locals setting in Akumal Pueblo. The folks serving you are wonderful and very accommodating. We were able to communicate my order with my limited spanish, an english menu, and a few hand gestures thrown in. Another staff member spoke... More
