Everyone must go here! As many times as you can! I recommend both the fish and shrimp tacos - they are unbelievable, deliciously battered and the sauces were so tasty. Amazing little place with friendly staff, Diego is so welcoming, can’t wait to return!

I can only assume that people who stayed at All Inclusive resorts ate here before their flight home? I’ve tried it twice. Terrible both times. There won’t be a 3rd time. Why are the tortillas greasy? There are literally 30 places serving better tacos on...the island. Stop eating, let alone praising, terrible tacos, people!More

Stopped here twice on our 6 night visit, Straight of the plane it's only a 5 minute walk across the road. Fish and shrimp tacos incredible, garlic habanero sauce very good, gauc and chips cant go wrong. Stopped just before the afternoon flight back out...and walked back to the airport across the road, Highly recommend a must visit.More

Nice place to visit for Tacos. Myself I got the vegetable tacos, Fresh and delicious. Can't beat the price. $5.00 USD. I am here for two months. Will stop by a bunch of times. By the way Diego is a friendly guy.

Like many, we always stop at Diegos when we get off our flight. Some of the best fish tacos on the island! If you haven't been there, check it out!

Awesome fish tacos, best on island, we tried multiple places. Eric, his mother and sister were exceptionally hospitable. Conveniently located across street from airport. July 2021.

These are absolutely the BEST fish and shrimp tacos! Diego's Tacos is such an easy stop on your way out of the airport- or your way back to the airport. (You'll want to stop there both times.) Eric is so friendly and helpful as well....The place has even been updated with a new roof over the patio.More

Thanks to reviews on TripAdvisor, we found literally the best fish tacos ever! I followed other reviewers on advise to not let other tour businesses fight for our business coming out of the airport so I followed advice and walked out of the airport w...luggage’s and all and went to this little local precious hidden gem. Eric was fantastic as well as the young woman who took care of us. I can’t describe the freshness but I could eat those tacos all day anyway!!! Highly recommend! Eric also got us a cab!! As other reviewers have mentioned, walk out of the airport (short walk). If you need s can, the can call for one.More

We forgot in the hustle and bustle of arriving to stop by. We did on our way out and after trying it wish we would have ate there more. This place is awesome and little place right outside of the airport. Fish tacos were Grouper...and some of the best I have ever had a close second to Sunshine Grill in GC. $115 pesos was on point as well. This is IMO the best restaurant on the island for the reason of great food and value.More

The fish tacos are excellent! This is a cool little outdoor patio area about 5 minutes walk from the airport. My wife and I checked in, dropped off our checked bags, then walked over to Diego's before going through security. If you're just arriving in...Cozumel, consider walking over to Diego's to start your trip because you can grab a taxi when you're done. Note that taxis can drop you off at the airport, but you cannot get a taxi to leave the airport. Anyway - the food is great. I'll be back.More
