Taqueria Chucki: Killer Tacos in Akumal

Taqueria Chucki in Akumal Pueblo is a must-visit destination for anyone with a penchant for Mexican street food. Serving up some of the area’s most affordable and delicious tacos, this eatery is a favorite among locals and tourists alike, noticeable by the crowd it draws at lunchtime.

Taqueria Chucki prides itself on offering a wide array of seafood tacos alongside a diverse menu that includes ceviches, nachos, quesadillas, tortas (sandwiches), burritos, and even prepared meats like carnitas and arrachera by the kilo. The variety caters to all tastes, featuring traditional dishes such as shrimp, pulpo (octopus), and caracol (conch) when in season. For those who lean towards land fare, the carnitas, fajitas, chicken options, and even vegetarian quesadillas and burritos ensure something for everyone.

A standout feature of Taqueria Chucki is its weekend specials. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the taqueria offers the Yucatecan favorite, cochinita pibil, served in tacos, tortas, or by the kilo, making it a prime time for visitors to experience this local delicacy.  Service is friendly and relatively fast but do avoid peak lunch hours if you’re in a rush. 

The pricing at Taqueria Chucki underscores its commitment to affordability without compromising on quality. Tacos are priced between 30 to 60 Mexican pesos each, making it an accessible meal option for all. Quesadillas start at 45 pesos, and the generously filled tortas range from 60 to 90 Mexican pesos, offering great value for money.

Operating hours are tailored to cater to the early risers and lunch crowds, with the taqueria open from Monday to Friday, 7 AM to 5 PM, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 7 AM to 3 PM. Its location on Avenida Gonzalo Guerrero, just a block and a half past the iconic giant conch statue and on the way to the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary, makes it an easy stop for anyone exploring the area.
