    Mexican restaurant opens at Hyatt Regency Aruba

    By Gay Nagle Myers

    Aruba's first Mexican restaurant opens Dec. 20 at the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Casino & Spa.

    Mexicado also marks a new dining concept for the Hyatt brand. The restaurant will feature traditional and contemporary Mexican cuisine alongside a dedicated tequila section.

    Furnishings include a shot glass chandelier.

    The Hyatt Regency also will unveil its refurbished Ruinas del Mar signature restaurant, which is surrounded by landscaping, water falls and pond Koi fish and black swans.

    Other recent upgrades include the 5,200-square-foot ZoiA Spa, the swim-up Balashi Pool Bar and the hotel's Shoco Market Café.

    The casino's new Ticket In, Ticket Out coinless system allows guests to print tickets that can be redeemed for cash or inserted for play in the resort's 249 slot machines.

    First Mexican? Iguana Cantina is Mexican - very Americanized Mexican ---- but certainly Mexican.


    I do want to try this this new place though... may have to rethink my dinner schedule!

    Iguana Cantina. Yes, they were probably the "first Mexican restaurant" on the Island, but there is a reason they are rated #80 of 84 on Trip Advisor in Palm/Eagle Beach. I can't wait to try out Mexicado!

    I agree - Iguana Cantina was below average. We had Fajitas there a couple years back - somewhat dissapointing. I did have a decent Margarita there though!

    Looking forward to trying the new Hyatt Mexican restaurant as good mexican food is definitely lacking in Aruba. We are disappointed that Japengo closed as they had really good sushi and I'm assuming this will be in its place.

    I love everything about the Hyatt. We have never stayed there but the grounds are so nice and its our favorite casino. We went to their superbowl party and they do things right. I'm sure this Mexican restaurant will be top notch.
    As for Iguana Catina - we have been that our traditional first night meal. My husband loves their pan fried grouper with salsa. I've tried a couple things, nothing to special, but I like the atmosphere looking over the fountain. It's also reasonably priced and I would think its probably a good option for families.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I know I saw a Taco Bell sign there somewhere. Ok, maybe thats not a real mexican restaurant but they do sell tacos and burritos.
    About 14 trips ago we ate at one of the Hyatt restaurants on their mexican night. It was all you could eat fajitas and "ritas". It was pretty good too.
