This no-frills taco spot in downtown looks nondescript, but has a very good reason for its word-of-mouth reputation: its slow-roasted cochinita pibil. When you walk up to the stand, which is always full of locals, you’ll be asked one simple question: tacos or sandwich? Whichever you choose is topped with cochinita (beautifully seasoned tender pork) and pickled red onions. The tacos themselves are fresh, hot corn tortillas, an absolute steal at just 15 pesos each. (The tortas cost 30; the restaurant also sells their cochinita and lechon by the pound). Every table is stocked with condiments to enhance the already flavorful tacos: pico de gallo, tomatillo sauce, guacamole, and a satisfyingly spicy habanero sauce. Make sure to get here early: they start selling at 6 a.m. and close as soon as they sell out, which is after just often lunchtime—in Tulum, tacos are a breakfast food.
