Come hungry because on this food tour, you’ll be sampling several of the Yucatan’s tastiest dishes. Visiting a mix of street stalls and restaurants, a local guide takes you to off-the-beaten paths to spots where locals dine. Visit an open-air market to learn about the foods you taste during the tour.
  • Playa del Carmen food tour: dine at five under-the-radar establishments
  • A foodie guide ensures a more personalized experience
  • Food, transportation, and gratuities included
  • Visit a local farmers market
What to Expect
Mexico’s excellent food comes in many regional flavors and styles of cooking. The Yucatan has its own cuisine and the price and availability of fresh ingredients, combined with the Riviera Maya lifestyle, have drawn renowned chefs to set up shop in the once-sleepy city. Meet your guide, a passionate foodie, in downtown Playa del Carmen near the bus station. From there, leave the throngs of tourists on 5th Avenue behind, as you make your way to where the locals dine. The first stop is for tacos (your host’s favorite in the city). Taste your way through town on foot and by taxi, making five stops in all and ending with a sweet treat. Then visit an open-air market to learn more about the ingredients you tasted and how to cook with them at home. The tour concludes at the Paseo Del Carmen shopping mall.

A very fun and interesting tour. I feel so bad as I cannot remember our tour guide's name. She spoke very good English and was knowledgeable and took care of our group of 6 of which we were 4. Well worth it except for the brutal heat!

Thank you for joining us for a fun and educational foodie experience. No worries on not remember Xantal's name ;) We know its a lot of food to eat and info to absorb. And yes, my apologies for the heat. It is that time of year unfortunately. We look forward to our "winter season" (and high season) to start at the end of November. Hopefully Xantal kept you well hydrated with the drinks that are offered at each stop. Glad it was worth it though!

Wow! Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative review! We are so glad that you took the opportunity to join us for the day. I am glad that Xantal shared the history of the food tour and Cozumel Chef with you. We are very proud of what we do and we hope to continue to share our passion of all things food with everyone! Hope to have you back in the area again soon and perhaps join us on a different foodie adventure (perhaps a cooking class, or our other food tour in Cozumel). Thank you again!!!
