Comer (Let’s Eat!)

First, lets begin with the most important part of the celebration, food! If you are on a quest for the best Mexican food in Destin, Miraramr Beach, or 30A  look no further than one of these local favorites…

Cinco de Mayo in Destin | Five Star Properties

Burrito del Sol– This family owned business came from humble beginnings as a Destin food truck, and takes pride in their food with homemade salsa, guacamole, seasonings, and sauces. Our favorites: Daily Catch fish tacos, and Chicken Chipotle Burrito cooked in house hot sauce!

Pepitos–  Pepitos serves authentic Mexican dishes made with fresh ingredients, including fresh made salsas and handmade tamales. With two locations in Destin and Miramar Beach, it has never been easier to find authentic Mexican cuisine when vacationing. Our favorites include: Tamales and Fajitas.

Crab Island Cantina– Located on the water at the end of HarborWalk Village, Crab Island Cantina certainly serves its food with a spectacular view! Our favorites: grouper tacos and gulf coast red snapper enchiladas.

Mi Casita– Located in Seaside, this 30A restaurant is becoming increasingly popular and the new local favorite. Known for their laid back style and amazing food it is easy to see why. Our favorites: pork carnitas and street tacos.

Beber (Let’s Drink!)

If a relaxing margarita on the beach is more your style…

Back Porch– Although this is not a Mexican restaurant they do offer some great margaritas and the beach location cannot be beat! Grab a margarita or two and watch the sunset with the sand at your feet.

La Paz– Has been voted the best Margarita in Destin. Their secret: fresh juices and top shelf tequilas. A local favorite is the infused fresh pineapple and jalapeno in a silver tequila.

Margaritaville– the list would not be complete without a trip to the famous Margaritaville located in HarborWalk Village.  Between the 5 O’Clock somewhere, Feelin HOT, HOT, HOT, and the Last Mango in Paris, you’re sure to get wasted away again in Margaritaville. (Just make sure you have a safe ride home if that’s the case!)
