“The gem of cancun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

By far the best place to eat and drink in cancun. The fiery fish taco is awesome and the homemade salsa is delicious. Plus they have the best drinks in cancun. Do not leave Mexico without going to the blue gecko I promise you'll fall in love with the place. John the owner is real laid back and the staff treat you like your a long time friend. I would honestly go back to cancun just to stop by again. Oh yeah make sure you get a banana monkey drink its the best

“A must try for lunch in Cancun!”

Great little lunch place in Cancun. The Texas Taco's are a must have! Great owners, Mimi and her staff take great pride in taking care of her customers.

“Delicious, authentic and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This little local hole-in-the-wall could easily be overlooked, and what a shame that would be. We enjoyed delicious mojitos and tacos plus an appetizer of homemade guacamole. One taco filled an entire basket, so if you order two, you better be really hungry. The sweet waitress/bartender is reason enough to visit! She was charming and sincerely enjoyed people. I recommend the firecracker fish taco for those who like a little spice. The taco (soft) shells even tasted of homemade corn flour! Delicious! Please visit this casual eatery. Save lots of money than if you were to eat at the mall or your hotel!

“Tastes like another”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

The best tacos in the world. They are big. I wish I had found the place sooner. With an icy cold beer or frozen Margarita, nothing better. Yum!
