So today we are going to talk about one of the most popular foods for which Mexico is well known and that is TACOS! So with that here is a list of some of our favorite Taquerias in Cozumel. This is not in any specific order and we’ll talk a little about what each of these Cozumel Restaurants has that is must try.
Cozumel’s Best Taquerias!
Los Otates – Los Otates is a great taqueria that has been open since 1990 here in Cozumel and is one of our favorites. They offer the traditional tacos like Tacos al Pastor, skirt steak, chicken, beef and pork etc. While the Tacos are great here there are 2 things here that I think are really top notch and definitely something you want to try and that is the gringas but try them with the steak they are awesome! Also another thing that Los Otates definitely does right is the Pozole which is just great! Los Otates is located on 15 Av sur between Calle 3 and Rosado Salas. Its open air and definitely worth a visit.
El Pique – Likely one of the most well known and talked about Cozumel Taquerias El pique is located right on 30Av across the street from the supermarket, “Aki”. El pique is very popular especially among the locals and they have quite a long list of tacos and some other things you might not find other places. Their tacos and tortas are great and the gringas are good but I still like the gringas from Los Otates more. I would definitely put them in second place as far as Tacos al Pastor and I will mention my number one pick for Tacos al Pastor further down the list. I must recommend their Choriqueso which is just awesome! If you aren’t familiar with Choriqueso it is simply grilled melted cheese with Chorizo mixed in but it is awesome to have with chips!
Los Seras – Los Seras is another of our favorite taquerias here in Cozumel and is definitely a must. Easy to find just like el pique it is located right on 30Av on the corner of Jose Maria Morelos. This taqueria is also popular and usually always has a constant flow of diners ordering in and taking out. While they are on par with the other mentioned taquerias what really sets them apart is their Mexican pIzzas! If you haven’t tried them you definitely need to stop by they are excellent! Oh keep in mind they are closed on Wednesdays but any other night of the week they should be open.
Mister Taco – Last but not least my favorite Taqueria in Cozumel is Mister Taco! Reason for this is definitely due to the fact that I love their Tacos al Pastor and definitely think they have the best Tacos al Pastor on the island. One tip for you while visiting Cozumel (this also applies to other parts of Mexico), those huge things of meat on a spike next to the fire you may have seen, the bigger they are means the better those Tacos are and if there are two of those out, that is a sure sign of great Tacos al Pastor. Why you might ask? The reason being is that they have to sell all of that in a night it cannot be resused the next day so if they have 2 out that means they are doing some business moving those tacos. So that said Mister Taco definitely is my favorite spot for tacos al pastor. If you want to avoid the rush go between 6:30pm and 7:30pm as after that the place really picks up with diners and people ordering out. Don’t get their too late though as sometimes by 11pm they have sold out of their tacos al pastor!
