Know More about this tour

Travel and food go together perfectly, so why not have a delicious trip while visiting Playa del Carmen? Take your taste buds for a ride on this 2-hour all-inclusive food tour of Mexican cuisine. Mexico's cuisine is known for its varied flavors, vibrant colors, and variety of spices and ingredients. It is a blend of indigenous (Mayan/ Aztec) and European elements (mainly Spanish) and in the busy streets of Playa you will be sure to find it all!

On this food tour you will indulge on authentic Mexican food and regional dishes of the Yucatan. Your local foodie expert will guide you to small, out-of-the-way eateries and locales, away from the tourist mainstays and the tourist path of 5th Avenue. Leave everything in the hands of your passionate, highly knowledgeable guide, including transportation, menu selection, and even paying the bills. All you have to do is savor the food and take a photo or two to remember your culinary journey.

The general itinerary includes 5 tasting stops at local food stalls/ stands and restaurants. Begin your tour with the regional cuisine of the Yucatan by trying one of the best tacos you will ever have (your culinary guides personal favorite). You will continue your food journey of Mexico by tasting other regional dishes and ending on a sweet note. In addition to the local food stalls and restaurants you will visit, you will also get a chance to see the local Mexican open-air farmers market. Learn about some of the ingredients you eat and how they are used.

You will be guided along the streets of Playa del Carmen that serve some of the best local food. Some walking is involved so bring comfortable shoes. Also, be sure to come prepared to eat, even though these are tastings you will leave quite full.

  • What fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the foods of the region. The different foods and beverage combined were great.

  • I was thrilled to go on this PdC walking Food Tour. I enjoyed eating where the locals dined and while this wasn't a 'fine dining' experience, we did discover the depth of flavour put into many of the regional plates we tried. One highlight for me was going through the market and discovering all the spices!
    thank you!

  • Our guide Xantal was wonderful. The tour company had suggested we postpone the tour due to the heavy rains of tropical storm Cindy but we love the rain and persisted. Xantal was a great sport about it. The foods were all delicious, but the Cochinita Pibil young pig cooked in a pit one of those taste treats that defies hyperbole. I will do this again on my next trip here and take better notes next time.

  • As a foodie, I wanted my first trip to PDC to be amazing and this excursion was the perfect conduit! From the first stop, to the last, our tastebuds were very happy!! Our tour guide was very personable and easy to talk with. It was a wonderful primer. Would love to see new excursions added to continue our appreciation of this region of the world.

  • This tour was perfect, just what we were looking for. Xantal took us to several eateries and described how their preparation and cooking methods were authentic. The food was very tasty! We also went to an open air market for the fresh produce and other ingredients. Xantal is very personable and knowledgeable- a perfect tour guide.

  • A great tour. I would recommend this to everyone. It gets you out of the fifth avenue grind and into areas of Playa Del Carmen you would not go. The food is great and it is REAL Mexican food! Very knowledgeable and very well done!!
