Big Mama’s (Costa Maya)

The unexpected surprises are always the best. @tarajroth and I had a small window to “jump off the ship” and go and get a bite to eat. My buddy Bam from DCL suggested a place called Big Mama’s.

My favorite part of the story was him saying that it was not fancy and that we would get to see Big Mama while there. @Tarajroth and I looked at each other and agreed it had to be done.

It was a rainy day. For some strange reason I had my umbrella with me and we walked quite a bit to find a taxi. Long story on why taxis aren’t allowed anymore near the pier. We found a taxi and we were on our way.

When we arrived Bam was there at Big Mama’s. I always love when people suggest a place that they personally eat it. When we arrived we were greeted by Big Mama. Sweet woman who has owned the restaurant for a year now.

Hugo was our server today. we stayed under the small hut. We had the option of sitting by the beach, but the rain stopped us from doing it today.

Big Mama was standing in the front area of the restaurant advertising to all the tourist stopping by bragging about her fresh fruit Margaritas.

Big Mama had asked if I wanted some serious hot sauce and my answer without hesitation was yes.
The tears would not stop. This stuff was very spicy. I loved it.

Fresh Guacamole. @Tarajroth has this philosophy. If the guacamole is good then all the rest of the dishes have to be good. Now you see why I love this woman.

Steak Burrito

Cheese enchiladas with green sauce.

Overall a nice place. Don’t expect anything fancy. This is not for regular tourist. This place is for people who love local eats. Everyone is down to earth. They are all very attentive as soon as you arrive. The food is good. Mexican coke is a must. Guacamole is also a must. Big Mama is greeting everyone with a big smile. Check it out for yourself.

This was @tarajroth’s third time here and my first. When coming off the ship it is about a twenty minute taxi drive. Most of the crew members come here to eat. Great food and great prices.

Today was busy. Most of the time it has crew members just relaxing while they eat. Today you could tell it was tourist season. Spring Break brought out all the people today.

The bar is hoppin’ at all times. Most people ordering Sol beer so they can drink the authentic drink in Mexico.

This was our view from our table. As you can see it was a beautiful day today. The breeze felt so good.

Guacamole. We had to start with a fresh order of guacamole and chips. This was a must. Perfect starter to a meal.

@Xobejm was not feeling adventurous so she played it safe and ordered the Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas. Great presentation and nice flavor with some true Mexican cheese.

Arrachera with rice and veggies. @Tarajroth ordered this one and she loves it. Every time she comes here that is what she orders. It is unbelievable.

Fish tacos. I would say my choice was the best one. The presentation of the dish and the flavors were amazing. They had a green hot sauce that was truly spicy. I kept on pouring it on after every bite. Great fish tacos.
