Tacos! What more can you say! They reminded me of street tacos in Mexico with a twist, anyway, very very tasty!

This was one of the very few open places at Culebra during this low season. We were skeptic but once we entered we felt pleasantly surprised. Good music and lighting. Food prices are good, Margaritas were a bit expensive at $11 each. We had crab and shrimp nachos and burritos as the main course. Everything was very tasty. Would definitely... More

My husband and I came to Culebra for our honeymoon and since its off season, not all restaurants are open. The lady at the front desk of our hotel told us about Zaco's Tacos and we couldn't be more pleased! The food here is amazing and the vibe is chill and relaxing. Everyone is attentive and super nice. We will... More

Zaco's Tacos is a great casual Mexican restaurant with outdoor seating. It might have a back yard feel because it is. The kitchen is in the house and seating out back. Food is pretty good, and the beer is cold. They have 3 beers on tap that rotate which is great for the locals. Not open on weekends which is... More

Great place. Since its the middle of the week during low season this is 1 of 2 restaurants that are open. The food was amazing. It was easily the best burrito I've eaten and I lived on the Mexican border. If you're visiting soon it will be one of your only choices.

Tacos were excellent and the atmosphere is a fun, local hangout. We had carnitas, chicken, beef and a special that was fried avocado! All were excellent!

Very casual! (As everything in Culebra is). The elote (corn in the cob) is a must try! Also, any of the tacos are amazing! Smoked pork flautas were another favorite of mine! A full bar is there for the enjoying. Try the Lime y Coco. It is frozen and only made in the island at Zaco's Tacos.

We ate here our first night. The food and staff was great. Not pricey. The atmosphere was excellent - old rustic building renovated. Can't go wrong here - enjoy!

Cool place to relax and recover from the sun. Our food was excellent and drinks were good. Probably the best atmosphere in the town. I would def recommend stopping in here for a bite and a few drinks! Only down side, and not just this particular establishment are the hours of operation. Zacos tacos in particular was only open Mon-Thurs.... More

This is our favorite lunch/dinner spot on Culebra. They have lots of fantastic specials but the tacos are the best. I love the fish and carnitas tacos but given the feedback from my travel companions, I feel confident in saying that all the tacos are wonderful. Also, you can have all the tacos for less than $5 a piece. Beware... More
