Looking for a good taco in Tulum? Try Safari…

Before opening Safari in 2015, owner Luis Aguilar commanded the kitchen at Manhattan taco chainlet Tacombi.

Now back on home turf, Aguilar has opened an outdoor restaurant along the hotel-dotted beachside strip equipped with a vintage 1971 silver Airstream, which he uses as a kitchen.

Here, the chef is serving a concise menu of what he calls “campfire food,” since most dishes which require heat are cooked on a small wood-fired pit beside the vehicle.

While the menu might read a bit like Mexican fusion (think yuca truffle fries, creme brulee), the tacos here — like the pork pastro — are some of the best in the area.

Alongside, opt for a variety of fresh juices (which can be spiked with mezcal), craft beer, and a slew of house cocktails.
