Overview
Rather than spending hours researching restaurants, ensure a great culinary experience of Playa del Carmen on a food tour that reveals some of the city’s best eateries. As well as receiving personalized attention in a small group limited to 10 people, stray from the beaten path and discover places that are frequented by locals rather than tourists.

After searching for walking activities, I happened to find Eating with Carmen the day before we wanted to go on tour. The website said the day was full, but I sent an email and luckily they were able to accommodate! We ended up having a private tour with Juan and it was amazing!
