Your Playa del Carmen taco-tasting adventure starts by getting well off the beaten path to discover some of the best street food in the city – hidden gems only locals know about. Get ready to explore the vibrant streets and find out where locals hang out, shop, mingle – and most importantly – eat!
The first stop will be for a quesadilla where you’ll also get to see how tortillas are made and learn how important they are to Mexican cuisine.
The second stop will be a small but colourful fruit market where we will check out some of the local produce and cool off with a fresh juice.
Our next stop will be for pollo rostizado, (local BBQ chicken) and we’ll be eating it at the most popular place to eat chicken among locals. You’ll also get a quick lesson in how to eat tacos like a local.
Still hungry? We hope so since there’s plenty more eating to do. Your fourth street food stop will be to sample tacos de carnitas (pulled pork tacos) where your local guide will tell you about the birth of Mexican cuisine.
Next up, we’ll try tacos de barbacoa, made using a pre-Columbian cooking style, and tacos de guisado (tacos with stewed fillings) from the revolution times. While you feast, you’ll learn the history behind these tacos.
Your last stop will be an exclusive rooftop terrace with spectacular ocean views where we will relax and enjoy a cold drink.
Your taco tour ends back at the meeting point, but you have the option of staying at the bar for as long as desired without having to pay for a day pass.
