“one of the two best taquerias in cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

if you visit our cabo paradise and don't try real neighborhood-place tacos, you haven't done yourself justice. sounds silly, but it's true... and taqueria las guacamayas is one of the two best. don't expect anything fancy, and it's a little off the "tourist" track, back in a neighborhood just off the main highway near san jose del cabo, but we regularly drive there from CSL (about 30 km?) because their tacos al pastor are just that good. seriously. service is friendly and fast, and we've entertained a table for 10 people including all the margaritas and beer we could handle for around $15 usd per person. if you're an adventurous eater, try a quesadilla chilanga de huitlacoche, a fried quesadilla filled with the usual cheese, with black corn "mushroom" added, topped with crumbly aged cotija cheese and a bit of lettuce. try also the quesadilla de flor de calabaza (squash blossom). watch out for their yummy house made salsas, as they can be almost incendiary (but delicious) in heat. i truly love this place, and it's a "must visit" spot whenever we have guests from up north. in season, you'll have to wait for a table, but order a drink and enjoy the local conviviality out on the sidewalk... it's marvelous! highly recommended by a cabo local.

“Best way to spend Valentine's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is what Mexico is all about!! Homemade traditional dishes and cold beverages along with welcoming staff. You sit down to a plate full of goodies, and amazing salsas! The fried cheese is a must and beware the stone bowls are meant for more than one :)

“Great Local Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

You have to search for this place; but do it. Many locals and long time US citizens have been enjoying this establishment for quite awhile. Super drinks and enough food to take back home (hotel) with you, just ask for some extra tortillas.

Good place for some original mex stuff, nice cocktails, very good food, easy atmosphere, definitely one of the best options trying to avoid the touristic spots...
