Cancun Travel Guide

Best Restaurants in Cancun

Cancun has a huge variety of restaurants, offering food and prices to suit nearly any taste or budget. The Hotel Zone is dominated by international chains like Hard Rock Cafe, TGI Friday''s, Tony Roma''s, Rainforest Cafe, and Señor Frog''s, however there are a number of very good Mexican restaurants in Cancun serving local food. The restaurants in downtown Cancun tend to be cheaper and more authentic, though they often lack the sheen of the more touristy establishments. Good food is available from streetside taco stands as well.

Local Yucatan cuisine combines some of the best elements of Spanish and Mexican dishes, including specialties like (tortillas with fried black beans, chicken and pickled onions), (suckling pig baked in banana leaves with annatto sauce), and freshly-caught local seafood.

Some of the most popular restaurants in Cancun include the cheap-and-cheerful seafood joint Santos Mariscos, the lagoon-side Mexican restaurant La Destilería (which serves more than 150 kinds of tequila), and the Mayan-inspired creations at La Habichuela.
