La Choza


A favourite haunt among cruise ship staff and return visitors to the island, La Choza is a family-owned and operated restaurant with the kind of bend-over-backwards hospitality that makes Cozumel so unique.

The huge open-concept dining room with brightly painted murals and a whimsical garden area at the back gives off a breezy Mexican-Caribbean vibe. Dishes like the mole poblano (a rich and savoury sauce infused with chocolate) and pollo en relleno negro (chicken with black stuffing) are traditional Mexican comfort food.

The free refills of cinnamon-infused house coffee are a great reason to stick around all day. Make this your go-to spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
