The final installment of my Mexico trip posts!
This isn’t a definitive guide for everywhere to eat in Playa del Carmen, but just a few places.
Breakfast / brunch
This is a little French boulangerie and patisserie, that serves breakfast, brunch, lunch – you name it – they have a liquor license so you can get mimosas too!! You can sit inside or outside on their tree shaded terrace and it’s super pretty, as well as being a Mexican take on Western food (only double carbs lol!)
See more on Trip Advisor here.
New country, new beer (it’s a thing I did whilst travelling last year!)
When it’s 32 degrees & humid at 11pm you need plenty of cold beers!! But what about during the day?!
Most of the beach by Playa del Carmen looks like Ibiza – private sun loungers and minimum spend… this plus a tonne (literally) of seaweed means that you’re best heading away from the shadeless beach and finding solace in the rooftop pool at Be hotel
Then some octopus – served the Galician way on sliced cooked potatoes with paprika – something I tried for the first time in Salou, Spain and loved! It’s still good – perfectly cooked octopus melts in the mouth.
Then we had the iberico beef – cooked on a hot stone at the table. The flavour was amazing, super tasty fat (and I don’t usually eat the fat!)
