Available at all five Velas Resorts, the insuite DIY taco bar fulfills taco cravings 24-hrs a day. A sampling of fillings range from al pastor with roasted pineapple, Poblano peppers with corn, and traditional Cochinita Pibil to fried Baja fish, octopus, and Chorizo with potatoes. To accompany the tacos, an assortment of sauces, varying in spiciness, like Xni-Pec and salsa verde and additional toppings like traditional guacamole and Melted Oaxaca cheese, are served. An assortment of tortillas are also offered.

At Grand Velas Riviera Maya, skillfully selected taco and tequila pairings combine the finest quality fish, shrimp and rib eye tacos with top-shelf tequila. Fish tacos with a cilantro emulsion are paired with Don Julio 70, a crystalline tequila with toasted oak notes followed by a clean and warm ending. Shrimp tacos, made with chile guajillo tortilla, are accompanied by 1800 Reposado tequila, which gives caramel with orange peels notes after six months in barrels of French and American oak. Rib Eye tacos are savored with anejo Tres Generaciones tequila, bringing out the quality and unique characteristics of the ingredients.
