La Jungla de la Rivera Playa Del Carmen Restaurant
Juice at La Jungla Restaurant

La Jungla de la Rivera is a small restaurant in the Colosio neighborhood on the north end of Playa Del Carmen that serves up healthy juices and menu items at inexpensive prices. It is a nice little place with outside seating. Colosio is not known for it’s restaurants but we keep seeing new things there popping up and some nice basic options.

Menu at La Jungla Restaurant

The menu here generally has healthier options and good juices. Prices for a meal and drink will run you about 70-80 pesos. This is a good deal and why we included them on our famous Cheap Eats Guide to Playa Del Carmen. Breakfast options and lunch/dinner options available.

Our Recommendations

This is not going to be a location tourist go to because it is far out of the center, but more for locals. If you pass though Colosio often then you might want to seek out this place to have a bite or juice. We like the fact they do things differently and not like all the other restaurants. The juice combinations are good and this also is a healthy place to eat not only for your stomach but for your wallet.

If you go to Muscle Beach Gym then this restaurant is right across the street and a good place to recover after a workout.

Open everyday from 7:00am-1:00am.

Have you been here before? What did you think? We would love to hear from you in the comment below.


  1. This restaurant was great! We will be going there several more times during our 2 months living in Playa in the Colosio area. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. We are back in Playa again this year and looking forward to having good juices and food at La Jungla. We hope to see Amber, the friendly server, there as well

  3. This is our 3rd year going to La Jungla. We have been twice so far in January 2018, and the food is not nearly as good as previous years. The drinks still seem decent. We will not be going back there again this year as we want to try other places.
