Sparkling headline reads Our Story

Tacombi was born on the balmy beaches of the Yucatán in 2006 with little more than a cloudless, palm-filled dream of sharing the beauty of authentic Mexican culture with the world.

2006, Playa del Carmen

We purchased a 1963 VW Kombi bus in Mexico City, wheeled it slowly (very slowly) through the Yucatan peninsula and parked it comfortably in the once-sleepy, now wide awake, beach town of Playa del Carmen. The engine was scrapped, transmission sold, seats swapped for cooking equipment, and the roof was reeled back to produce a taco serving stand with warmth, charm and character.

taco + kombi = Tacombi

That small bus has continued an adventure of transformation & passion. Our neighborhood taquerias are places for people to gather, enjoy, and share in the communion of tacos. We are honored and grateful to share this piece of Mexico with our communities.

Tacombi has built an environment for those who want to share their innate positivity and professionalism in the service of others. Our neighborhood taquerias are part of larger communities and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve them every single day.
