Our teenage boys loved the bacon-wrapped deep fried chicken tacos. Mom loved the grilled fish taco. The steak and Korean BBQ tacos were also hits. Delicious mojitos with lots of mint and lime. Owner John is very hands on and shares island tips and stories while you eat his wonderful creations. We will certainly return to Blue Gecko!

We were very excited about going there because of all the excellent reviews and were very disappointed with the place. Very slowwwww! Not enough wait staff, drink was weak and food was flavorful but small portion for a burrito ............very disappointed!!!

Thank you for your feedback. We do apologize for the slow service in March due to an overload of Spring Breakers. We only have a breakfast burrito and the rest of our gourmet tacos are made fresh ingredients with large amounts of the " good ole stuffin ". Please come back and try drink on the house(double) as well. Hope to see you in the future.

Not only was this place great it was a great value. The Guacamole was the best we had all week, so who cares that the chips (which were good) were from COSTCO. The tacos were amazing. We got fish, pork and chicken. All five of us loved what we got. The owner was a lot of fun. Only bummer was that we went there on our last night in Cancun. We definitely would have gone back again.

This little out door bar/restaurant has the most amazing variety of tacos you'll ever see. Fish, chicken, beef, you name it, they have it and the seasoning is to die for. The owner, John is there all the time and he will personally see to it you get the taco to fit your taste buds. If you are tired of the watered down, over-priced hotel drinks, head down to the Blue Gecko and get a real margarita for 65 pesos or so. Maybe a mohito is what you want, same amazing drink and deal. Make sure you don't head into the restaurant just left of the blue gecko, look for the thatched roof outside, it may be small but comes through with big value.
