Mexican restaurants in Aruba

When your feet sink into the warm sands of Aruba, you can almost taste the burst of flavors waiting for you at the island's top Mexican restaurants.


Many in our community have Latin American roots, which has led to quite a few authentic, mom-and-pop restaurants offering traditional dishes from their homeland.

Argentinean cuisine, heralded for its juicy beef, sausage, and other grilled meats is featured at many restaurants, and a visit to a Brazilian churrascaria will fill your plate with endless cuts of meat carved table-side by roaming gauchos.

Oh, and the ceviche--you must try our ceviche! Brought to us via Peru, a ceviche on Aruba is as fresh as it gets--with our local fishermen bringing in their daily fresh catches that are utilized by our chefs to produce several unique versions of this dish.

Central and South American restaurants in Aruba are abundant. The restaurants were integrated into our culture so easily because Central American and South American cuisine resemble Caribbean food in preparation and presentation. There is a distinct difference in flavor that is unmatched. Aruba hasn’t been the same since the introduction of patacon and ceviche!

We’re just getting started with the amazing effects Aruba has to offer. Dig into your trip details below to unlock a Caribbean experience that will fill you with sunshine and send you home with a happy afterglow that never fades.
