Great food, right between B Tulum and Ahau and best of all great hosts. I went to Tulum for Art with Me festival, but the part of my trip was to have a chat, drink and enjoy great food with restaurant owners.
If you are looking not only for good food but also great company, you should definitely try this place.

Loco has great food, possibly the best fish tacos I’ve ever tasted, good, friendly service and a lovely laid back atmosphere. It’s a small restaurant so you are treated as individuals. On our first visit the chef came out to spend a few minutes talking to everyone, and it’s clearly a place where locals as well as tourists hang out. Always a good sign in my opinion. So when I went fishing and caught a nice sized mahi-mahi I took it there to see if the chef would cook it for us. He was brilliant, the fish was delicious and it was a highlight of the holiday.

We have been hanging out at this restaurant during our stay in Tulum. One of the best places to hang out. Everyone is so nice and costumer service is great. The owners, Patricia and Ilan ,are very nice people. They hung out with us and recommended places to go. Highly recommend.
