Meet your expert local guide in downtown Playa del Carmen and get whisked off to a non-touristy part of town to begin the eating and shopping extravaganza. Chat with the colorful owners and chefs of taquerias and restaurants as servers set out local delicacies in front of you. For those who are not culinary daredevils, snack on favorites like cochinita pibil, a slow-roasted pork dish that is native to the region and is said to date as far back as Mayan times; pozole, tamales Oaxaqueños (steamed masa wrapped in banana leaves) Marquesitas ( a delicious local made dessert) or local made Ice cream.
After filling up on excellent local fare, it’s tequila time. Drink a sampling of Mexico’s favorite spirit at a local
tequileria while learning the interesting history of tequila from your guide. If the spirit moves you, so to speak, feel free to shop for bottles to take home — there are over 200 varieties for sale. Tour participants even get a discount.
After the Tequila tasting you are all done and are right at 5ta Avenida, also known as Fifth Avenue, the city’s main shopping street, for some serious shopping. Browse local fashions and pick up a souvenir or two to remind you of your fun evening.
