Must try!

An amazing experience we got to visit some really great food places along with some history behind it. If you are in Playa del Carmen you have to try
Wonderful local tour

We had an amazing time on this tour! Coco was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was also great getting out of the touristy scenes to experience more local eateries. Thank you for a lovely experience!! Coco also made my sister’s birthday a nice experience.

Our tour guide was interactive, engaging, and friendly! However, the experience/tour itself was very disappointing. I think this tour would be appropriate for $20 USD max, not $54!. Each food sample (1 mushroom quesadilla, 1 enchilada, 2 street tacos, and a homemade popsicle) would normally cost about 15 pesos each. I don't think the 2 hour walking tour was worth 1,000 pesos. I've been lucky enough to enjoy some street tacos/quesadillas prior to this tour. So I thought the price was outrageous for what was included on the tour. No sides, no variety, and only option for a beverage was flavored water that we were able to sample and carry (this was good to sample though). I also thought information about the history/culture was lacking.
Awesome food, great street art, knowledgeable and locally passionate about the heart of the city

Coco was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. He took us to some spots very nearby (Fifth Ave) that we would've never knew existed. Local spots within a few blocks Inland... But the taste was so much more than the larger restaurants we previously experienced. We took my 14yo. She loved the desserts and juices along with the street art. I highly recommend this tour to find the true culture/heart of the city. Coco shared the street art history and offered delicious food we would've never tried without him.

Very authentic food in playa! We got to eat with the locals & learn about their culture! I would like to do the same with shopping:)
Great tour and guide. Arrive Hungry!
, Apr 2021
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.

Everything we had was amazing! We went to local spots that we would not of had on our own. I would 100% recommend this tour! Plus our tour guide was amazing!!
Discover what the locals already know.

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!

Great Tour to book

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.
