Bought handmade lamps and hammocks from the artists market. A little too much pressure in some stores but still a very good feeling when you buy from someone you know made or helped make the item.

Great carnita tacos and their chips with pico de gallo is fantastic. The hot sauce is sooooo good but it is pretty hot.

We are back in Puerto Morelos for another visit but won't be able to eat at Piccolinas. We asked around and found out that it closed 6 months ago. Too bad. there are other places to try. I hope we find another that's as tasty.

Amazing food, the best roast chicken and handmade corn tortillas I ever had! Service was amazing, although they did not speak English they were gracious and ever so accommodating. You must make a stop here and taste the real Mexico, not just the food but the hospitality as well. La comida es muy rico!

Sad we ate here only once! We got lost looking for Chicken Itza (we should really learn Spanish) on a particularly warm day. We had almost given up, but soon smelled Q & began to follow our noses. Its wasn't the legendary Itza I'd read about, but it smelled like heaven & we weren't going any further. We never tried... More

I loved the simplicity and typical Mexican atmosphere and the slow cooked chicken on a giant outdoor grill. Mexicans were eating there, which is a good sign, and the amount of food, salad, hot salsa, tortillas, rice and chicken all for about 50 pesos. Holy chicken! I was in heaven! Plus, I ate the salad and didn't get sick, which... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The young man cooking explained to me how he makes his sauce and was so friendly while he was working really hard to fill orders. He was cooking over a wood fire. We had 1/2 chicken, frijoles, tortillas, rice and a really nice hot salsa with dried chilies. Of course, all was washed down... More

After asking half a dozen people where to find this place, and being sent all over town we finally arrived. For the record, it is a block past Cantina Habenero, on the same side of the street, on the corner. The smell is awesome, the price very cheap, and the chicken was delicious. The salsa was too hot for us... More
