Wonderful time with tour guide Alex!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Alex was an enthusiastic tour guide that made our whole trip to playa del Carmen a delight. We went to four paces to eat and learned about the history of the food and art.

Our group was a small group of four guest, which made it very enjoyable but I imagine a large group of 10 or more guests would make it a little hectic.

Overall, this was one of the highlights of our trip.

Great Food Experiences outside 5th Avenue
Nov. 2021
Indie (sp?) was a great tour guide who showed some of the different food options off 5th ave in Playa Del Carmen. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city and the different types of we foods eaten on the tour. Two days after the tour my girlfriend and me visited the popsicle/paleta/ice cream shops he took us to. I would suggest this tour to anybody who wants to venture out side the food options on 5th ave.

Make this your first tour in Playa!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Our guide Enrique was incredibly enthusiastic about sharing the history and culture of the Mayan people and how it plays into the local food. Each stop we made were places away from the busy 5th Ave where the locals eat. We tried a variety of different fare, saw beautiful art muralsrr in nearby neighborhoods and toured a local market learning about fruits and vegetables used in Mayan cooking. We were especially impressed with his knowledge of historical background behind the dishes we ate and different drinks we got to try. This tour exceeded our expectations and highly recommend choosing this one on your first day to Playa del Carmen!

Authentic tour with good guide
We enjoyed the tour with Alex very much. We visited many small and local restaurants with very tasty food, which we would not have found without this tour. Alex told us a lot of interesting info about the local food.

Eating with Carmen and Alex were a 10!
You get your money’s worth on this tour! We tried 5+ different dishes that represented the local culture. You walk about a mile total. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again! Our guide was Alex and he was super knowledgeable, friendly and informative.

Tasty Food Paired with Interesting Mexican History
Oct. 2021
Enrique was a wonderful guide for this walking food tour. He was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about not only the food we were eating, but his country of Mexico. Every moment of the trip was full of interesting information and funny jokes.

For me, there wasn't a single food we ate that I didn't enjoy. By the end of the tour, we were all absolutely STUFFED.

I highly recommend taking this tour to get an authentic meal from a real Playa del Carmen resident.

Great Evening Eating Around Playa del Carmen
Oct. 2021
We had a great night with our guide, Indra. We are from southern California, so nothing on the food tour was really new to us, except the special ingredient in the quesadillas, but it was all very high quality and tasty. We actually went back to two of the taco stands a few nights later to down more tacos and tortes. Also, my husband really wanted to find some good birria, and the place Indra recommended exceeded expectations - we went for breakfast the next day. My favorite part of the tour was walking the streets with Indra and learning a bit about the culture and history of Playa del Carmen - from its quick growth as a result of tourism to street art and history. I highly recommend a walking food tour on your visit to Playa.
