Carnitas limei TACO SHOP

A new taco shop has opened a little over a year ago that is serving amazing carnitas!  You can buy them by the taco or by the kilo with tortillas to take back to your room.  Some nights they are serving tortas(sandwiches), tostadas, salbutes and tamales but most nights (Breakfast and lunches too) they have their delicious carnitas available with fresh made habanero salsa. They are located on the street corner between Tobys and Xcalak Realty right in the center of downtown.  HIGHLY recommended.

  • Always a good idea to inquire with your lodging or other locals to seE if there are any seasonal restaurants or dining possibilities that have sprung up
