Used to take groups here when I'm Cancun, but it has been a while. Love the saddles used for seats at the bar, entertainment by staff members, the "conga line" around the restaurant and special treatment for birthdays, etc. I will definitely return next time in downtown Cancun.

We took our grandson here for his 14th birthday. It was fantastic and so much fun. Tricks by the waiters, dancing into the street and the good was awesome as usual. A great fun place to go. Highly recommend it

visited years ago and had a ball--highlight of our trip-this time thought we would give our kids the experience. Pericos is downtown-downtown has expanded and is now a traffic jam waiting to happen--took us 45 minutes from hotel zone-it has to be hurting them. We walked in on a Tuesday night to a 8yr olds birthday party and maybe 2... More

Our waiter,Jesus, was great and had fun with us. Mango Mojito was excellent and just what a traveler needed...oh! Did... More

We had a super fun dinner out at this place with our teenage children. Food was fabulous, service was entertaining and hilarious and the mirachi band and the congo line through the place in the evening was just a great fun thing to do. Worth the drive into town for the true feeling of Mexico.

Perico was a special experience for us, our server Jesus was awesome. He made lot funny tricks and my son was super happy. My son would say this was his best in Cancun. They had live music, the band played really good music. They also took pictures of us with few Mexican props which was then nicely framed with a... More

Good food and plenty of entertainment. Make this a stop for dinner. it is a little out of the way, but worth the trip. We got there at 7pm it was a little quiet, but at 8pm the entertainment got started. Make sure you get involved with the fun if you have the opportunity.
