What to Expect from our Playa del Carmen Taco and Beer Tour
Start your experience with a prompt and comfortable hotel pick up. Meet your friendly English speaking local guide, who will escort you through the whole tour.
Our tour is hosted by a professional Mexican chef, who will share city’s history, the story behind each spot we’re visiting and interesting facts about prehispanic ingredients we still use in Mexican cuisine (and that you’ll try).
In addition, we’ll point to the principal Playa del Carmen landmarks as we move through. Live an authentic local atmosphere in every place while tasting our selection of tacos.
Expect to skip the line and a reserved table in each stop:
- Mexico City “Suadero” street style taco.
- “Cochinita Pibil”. Pulled pork marinated mayan-yucatecan style.
- “Birria”, as seen in Tik Tok. Slow-cooked meat stew is marinated in aromatic red chiles and served up with melted cheese tacos.
- Prepare your own “Taco al Pastor” in the most iconic Mexican restaurant in Playa del Carmen.
- Try the best regional dessert, the “Marquesita”. Rolled crispy crepe stuffed with cheese and your favorite topping.
The secret behind any taco is the salsa. A wide variety of sauces are offered as sides, from mild to spicy.
4 refreshing drinks are included (1 in each stop), plus complimentary ice cold Mexican beers on board of the van. If you’re not into beer, natural flavored wáter and soft drinks are also available.
Last but not least, we’ll offer free time to stroll around at a local park and the world famous Quinta Avenida, before heading back to your hotel.
Take your tour early in your vacation so that you can return to the spots you enjoyed most, and also to make a few new foodie friends along the way!
