Great tour and guide. Arrive Hungry!

From start to finish our guide was engaged, helpful and informative. Juan weaved in information about the local culture of Playa Del Carmen into the tour between stops providing the delicious food. Make sure you arrive hungry! The food at each location was tasty and was accompanied by an explanation and description of the dish. My group returned to several of the locations after the tour. I would absolutely recommend this tour and any of the other tours Juan offers.

Sooooo yummy! We’ve been to Playa about 10 times and wish we had done this tour before now. I highly recommend doing this towards the beginning of your stay so that you can revisit the vendors and restaurants! You are going to want to go again. Coco was fun and shared a bit of history as we went. We did the 10:00 am tour and had some typical breakfast foods as well as the best tacos this side of the Rio Grande! Absolutely recommend!

Our Tour Guide was so sweet and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to get to know all some of the different spices and dishes from the different states in Mexico. We got some history lessons also which was nice to learn about.

After a couple of days at your beachfront hotel or resort, venture out and experience the real Playa del Carmen! The afternoon walking tour begins with a stop at a recently renovated mercado and winds its way through neighborhoods highlighted with murals painted by local artists recognized throughout Mexico. Mayan and Mexican dishes are prepared by family-owned vendors based on traditional recipes. The food is outstanding, and so is the tour leader—her passion for the Yucatan and its history is sincere. Hasta luego!

Wonderful experience!! Coco was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and we were able to have true authentic, local Mexican food that I think was probably the best in town! He also shared the history behind the food and the town. If you get Coco as your guide you will for sure have the best tour!

We signed up for this tour when we couldn't find a cooking class that worked for the time we had available. I'm so happy we did because it turned out to be super informative. I went with my two adult daughters and loved Abby's energy, knowledge and direction. It was great to taste all the local flavors and eat at the local spots in addition to learning about the history of the food we were trying. The street tacos, fresh juices and popsicles were our favorites! Touring the murals exposed the artistic side of Playa as well as the history of how Playa developed over time. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in fantastic food, local insight and history.
