We found this little restaurant very close to the airport, we dropped our bags off and ran back over to grab a quick lunch. We received a very warm and welcoming greeting. The menu is pretty simple but fresh and delicious! Perfect portions for a light lunch and great prices. The staff was very attentive to our needs and the... More

Incredible food steps away from the airport. Perfect for lunch and easy to grab a cab for a more reasonable rate than taking one at the airport or using a shuttle. Exit the baggage claim area, walk past the shuttles and through the round-a-bout. You can't miss the red Coca Cola tent. If you don't stop, you are missing out... More

We stopped at Diego's for the first time this trip and I think we found a new tradition. This place is conveniently located by the airport. We grabbed some delicious tacos and some drinks before heading back home. I tried at shrimp tacos and loved them. Everyone was very friendly. We will certainly be back.

We love street tacos and this place was recommended by a long time resident of Cozumel. The people are extremely friendly and the food is excellent. The Diegos Taco namesake has a perfect balance with the meats and wonderful corn tortillas, the pico is fresh and delicious, the green habanero sauce is spicy with good flavors. We are definitely adding... More

It's located across from the Airport- Its a great place to start and end your trip! It is a family owned business and the service was great! They made a special trip to get the beverages that they did not have on site! We highly recommend Diegos!

This place has very authentic food and the people are amazing. Diegos is a must going to or from the airport. Everything my group tried was delicious even the lemonade is great and the prices are very low for the high quality. Don't miss this place !

We had a 4 hour wait time between our hotel checkout and our flight today. I'd seen Diego's mentioned here on TripAdvisor, so we decided to give it a try. It's a short walk from the terminal, it's maybe 300 yards. As one poster mentioned, if you would like to catch a taxi upon arrival to Cozumel, just walk over... More

Great spot once you get off the plane to get you some great food. We were blown away and have another must-do stop every time we fly in now.

In advance of visit I read the reviews.... Was not 100% convinced but had extra wait time at the airport. Found the red tent no problem, was about 2 block walk from the airport terminal (5 min) - totally safe place to walk around. I had the AWESOME shrimp tacos (3) and can't speak highly enough about them. Super fresh,... More
