A food tour, market tour, and cultural experience

Your excursion starts with walking through the corridors of a typical Mexican street market. Let yourself be surprised by the colors and smells; from food, fruits, and flowers to Mexican candies, everything is a delight for the senses. Part of a local experience is smelling, seeing, and understanding a city. You will continue this experience with a scenic walk through Playa del Carmen Centro. What has made Playa so popular is that this location is a walking city. You walk to the beach, you walk to the grocery store, and while you walk, you can discover very interesting spots. Take a break from the beaches to explore a different side of Playa del Carmen that shows you the city’s best graffiti, murals, and other street art that decorate the walls of neighborhoods. Gain insight into the local arts scene directly from your guide and meet other creatives during stops at art galleries. Plus, get the inside scoop on where to eat, drink, and play away from the tourist crowds during your stay. Cook traditional Mexican Cuisine in a unique culinary experience

Enjoy making your margarita, then try your hand at making traditional handmade corn tortillas and of course, learn how to make the best salsa for your tacos. These are the three elements that cannot be missing in a typical Mexican meal. Once you take these lessons, you are ready to impress your friends back home.

One more taco, please!

Bring your appetite to this food-filled tour in Playa del Carmen. You’ll sample some of the region’s best tacos. The first stop is taqueria el Sueño where you will taste the best Barbacoa tacos. “Barbacoa” is a popular dish found at many Mexican restaurants. It is commonly made with beef or lamb. This flavorful meat is deliciously seasoned and cooked low and slow until perfectly tender. Layer it in tortillas with your favorite toppings! Your next stop will be at taqueria Chuy, traditional beef tacos paired with the drink of the Mayan gods, “El Pulque”. Pulque is a prehispanic fermented alcoholic beverage made from the sap of the maguey plant. Traditionally, you must visit a pulqueria to taste pulque, but you can try the good stuff at this taqueria. Finally, “Tacos al Pastor”, a signature of Mexican cuisine, will be the gold pin to this culinary experience. Every grillmaster, taqueria owner, and food cart cook has their version of this classic that feels the streets with the smell of spicy grilled pork with charred pineapple and onion, but you will lick your fingers at “Los Tarascos” restaurant.

A sweet end to a perfect day

Mexico’s rich culinary tradition originates from thousands of years of history, and it includes both savory and sweet dishes. Mexican desserts have also a richness of ingredients and dessert presentations vary depending on the region. The dessert will be a surprise at the end of the excursion. You will have free time to enjoy the famous 5th avenue for shopping.
