    We are currently staying in Barra de Navidad until Jan 2. Then we head over to Progreso. We have rented a house for 4 months and we are also traveling with an Australian Sheppard named Augustus. We are looking forward to meeting both of you. Hope we can bring our dog!

    No question about it. This little place has become one of our favorites. The hosts are great, the food is simply wonderful and it just makes the living experience so much more enjoyable!! Carol and Paul are always so gracious, enjoyable and make the whole experience just great.

    The thing that distinquishes this eatery is the quality of the food and the consistency with which it is prepared. Paul and Carol provide the down home cooking and an atmosphere that says come and stay as long as you want, meet your friends, meet new friends and come back regularly. If you haven't been there you are missing something special.

    A great place to hang out with friends and enjoy a coffee or some great food. Carol and Paul are wonderful hosts and Suri does a great job helping in the kitchen.

    Breakfast Burritos are a staple and my waistline proves it.

    TacoMaya is our favorite place to eat in Yucatan! Paul and Carol are lovely hosts, and always make delicious food. The theme nights they have are fabulous and usually have a waiting list to attend. They also sponsor the 'Funky Market' craft shows a few times a year, which are attended by many expats.
    If you are visiting Merida, you MUST come out to the beach to eat here!

    Everything about TACOMAYA is great. The food, the people, the atmosphere.... a perfect visit every time.
