Full description
Dive into Mexican food and cultural experience in one of Playa del Carmen’s most unassuming neighborhoods on this 3-hour walking guided food tour. Taste incredibly distinct cuisine from Italy and Lebanon to Chiapas and Mexico City, all brought together in a multicultural city. Visit street stalls that are famous for their secretly spiced tacos: cochinita, carnitas, pastor, and more. Walk to a local restaurant known for the best chocolate-spiced mole in town - a rich spiced sauce that pairs with slow-cooked chicken. Sample the culinary diamonds of Playa del Carmen while becoming deeply aware of the Mayan Riviera’s history, culture, and geography. Learn the origins of one of the world’s most-loved cuisines: traditional Mexican food. See secret, less known areas kept under the radar, such as family-run markets where they stock hard-to-find seasonal fruits, vegetables, and fresh-squeezed juices. Finish your walk on a sweet note: at one of Playa del Carmen’s best, handmade popsicle shops. Try classic, Mexican ice or milk-based frozen popsicles that are infused with the local, exotic fruits of the area.

Great!! Not just for food lovers. Enrique also has a very in-depth knowledge of the history, cultures and fauna of the Yucatan Peninsula. Highly recommended.
