Playa del Carmen Food Tour
From US$65,00

Come hungry because on this 2-hour food tour, you’ll be sampling several of the Yucatan’s tastiest dishes. Visiting a mix of street stalls and restaurants, a local guide will take you off the beaten path to the spots where locals dine. Visit an open-air market to learn about the foods you taste during the tour.

What to Expect

Mexico is known for its excellent food, but you may not know that there are many regional flavors and styles of cooking within the country. The Yucatan has its own style of 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, you will 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. You will also visit an open air where you can 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.

Our family of four took the tour, and it was one of the highlights of our week long vacation. We got to taste authentic food, at places selected because they are favorites of the locals.
