Snowbirds are Returning to Playa del Carmen

It’s that time of year when the snowbirds start to prepare for their return to Playa del Carmen once again. Leaving behind the cold winds, rain and snow and migrate south to the sunny beaches of Playa del Carmen for much fun and well deserved relaxation.

Since your visit last year Playa del Carmen has had some changes to the Fifth Avenue. You will be glad to know that more stores have been added to the La Quinta Alegria Shopping Plaza, and there are several others due to open shortly. Unfortunately, the Body Shop has closed and remains empty right now but we are excited to see what will open next.

If you remember, last year there was a large construction site just a few steps away from the La Quinta Alegria mall, where the famous Calle Corazon used to be. Now there is a modern five story plaza called “Calle Corazon Mall”, where you will find well known retail stores like H&M -which opened one of the largest fashion shops on Fifth Avenue, plus sunglasses, cosmetics and a new Starbucks, and there will be much more to come. Above the shopping area is the upscale Thompson Hotel with 2 rooftop restaurants that are open to the public, the Cinco and Catch Restaurant, here you can enjoy a fabulous meal and some of the best views of the city.

Hopefully some things in Playa del Carmen will not change as we as locals and snow birds enjoy the simpler things too and a big hit with both is Kava Kasa. You will be happy to know that they still have a great yoga lineup and their weekly local market has not changed, you will find your fresh produce there every Tuesday morning. Kava Kasa posts their monthly yoga schedule on their Kava Kasa Facebook page and any other changes that may happen.

Playa del Carmen: Seafood Lover’s Paradise

Seafood lovers will have a variety of options to choose from when visiting or living in Playa del Carmen. After all, this was originally a fishing town, and it stays true to its origins with a host of seafood restaurants. There is a wide spectrum of options, from the most economic cevichería to the most luxurious fishery owned by well-known and celebrated Mexican chefs.

True to its nature, Playa del Carmen is going to take you on the culinary experience of a lifetime. Here are some of our staff’s favorite seafood destinations in paradise.

Los Aguachiles

This mouth-watering restaurant has two locations in Playa del Carmen and another two in Cancun and Tulum. The aguachile is a traditional Mexican dish made of shrimp seasoned with chili peppers and lemon juice. Vegetables such as cucumbers and onions are usually added to spice up the flavor. Although that is their famous and most prominent dish, there are a wide variety of seafood options to choose from.

Cocktails, tostadas, ceviche, and tacos are just a handful of the elaborate and exquisite choices from their menu. To compliment your meal order a cold michelada; nothing screams beach time like seafood and a cold beer.

Chiltepin Marisquillos

Quaint, unique and with a pool, this small locally-owned restaurant is the perfect fusion between land and seafood. Located on 34th street, this savory restaurant has little competition to its tempting and pleasant dishes that take you on a journey of excellent taste and texture experiences. Whether you opt for a caldo de camarón (shrimp broth) or a delicious shrimp and chipotle tostada, you are in for an explosion of flavors. For those who love seafood but want to give the land meal experience a go, you can choose from a variety of chicken and beef dishes – hamburgers, fajitas, tacos, and more.

Order an entry of beef nachos to share and follow it with a dish of oysters and settle it in your stomach with a delicious and cold michelada or just a very cool beer (una bien muerta). Chiltepin Marisquillos stands out for its delightful food and gratifying service.

 photo chiltepin-marisquillos_zpst4fskres.jpg


This lovely seafood tavern on Constituyentes Avenue, just two blocks from the ocean, is home to some heavenly dishes that will have your mouth watering in a matter of seconds. With barely two years in the Playa del Carmen scene, this restaurant has quickly made its way up to the top of the seafood favorites. Maybe it’s the shrimp clamato, its shrimp burger or its hefty burritos filled with your choice of meat that has pushed this restaurant to the most recommended in Playa del Carmen. It doesn’t matter what you choose, you’ll be delighted to have tried it.

A fish ceviche accompanied by a cool beer or one of their many fresh water flavors can make an ordinary meal into an extraordinary gastronomical experience.

Well, I’m certainly hungry now! There are a handful of other delish places for seafood lovers, and we’re certain that a stroll down Fifth Avenue or any of its adjacent streets will end in a whirlwind journey of amazing flavors.

Grand Opening of La Memorable

Friday October 9, 2015 saw the grand opening La Memorable, a new food market located next to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Located on the corner of 1st avenue and 26th, this is the third food market to open in Playa del Carmen and this night was dedicated to giving the residents of Playa a taste of what they have to offer. With a DJ and live band providing the soundtrack to an evening that gradually built in attendance, guests eventually filled the market and enjoyed the free samplings of wine and food. Juggling clowns and various street performers added to the entertainment ambience.

Below you will see a photo gallery that not only captures the evening’s action but also also serves as an intro to the many shops that you will find when you arrive and explore for yourself.

 photo gonzales_zpsfaknbywg.jpg Upon first entering the food market you will come across the Gonzalez artisanal beer bar. There is only Mexican beer sold here, with seventeen on tap and 21 different bottled beers. The prices for beer begins at 35 pesos and goes up to 100 pesos.  If beer is not your drink of choice then there´s a full alcohol bar available as well. The bar´s location makes it an ideal place to sit and watch the people on the street but also is a good place to expand your palate of beers.
If you are a wine lover then head over to the Ensenada wine bar. It only features Mexican wines. and is the perfect place for business meetings or enjoying a drink after a day of work. Prices are very reasonable at about 90-140 pesos a glass, with bottles selling for between 300-1000. If you’re interested in something a little different, try picking up a bottle from the  Paladar De Mezcal store. There is not a lot of mezcal sold in Playa, so grab some for yourself or as a souvenir. They have a great selection that includes flavors such as mango and tamarind, and you can also order from their special cocktail menu.  photo DSC00371_zpsp6lwtdts.jpg

If you’re hungry and looking for something to eat head over to the Oye Carino seafood restaurant, a place where you can select your own fish for your meal or just have fish tacos. If you prefer a traditional  Mexican taqueria then head to the back of the market where you will find Taco Taco,  featuring a wide array of Mexican tacos.

 photo DSC00368_zpsfynhw0xy.jpg

For dessert try the El Socio candy store, perfect for the kids and people with a sweet tooth, then wind things off with a trip to Sabor Illegal,  the place to go for specialty cigars from Cuba and all over.

 photo DSC00422_zpsewxlcwn1.jpgSee for yourself why this was a such big attraction to the residents of Playa. La Memorable is now open so drop by and enjoy for yourself!

The Perfect Meal: Best Spots for Lunch in Playa del Carmen

During my time on Earth I have met plenty of people who have claimed they do not eat breakfast. I’ve heard hundreds of others mutter that they would rather skip dinner and avoid being bloated before going to bed. However, not once in my life, have I come across someone who proclaimed they “don’t do lunch”. Sure, whatever, breakfast thinks it’s the most important meal of the day (it actually is, so don’t skip it), but who would ever say no to lunch?

Lunch means many things. It means that the time of the day when you can take a break from work or the hectic day has come. It represents freedom and everything in between. Lunch is that time of day when your brain can shut off and your senses can awaken. Ah, lunch, you are precious.

Because lunch is obviously delicious and important, I have set out to find the best spots to have a delicious and satisfying meal in the gorgeous town of Playa del Carmen. Are you ready?

Here are my Top 5 favorite restaurants to have lunch in Playa del Carmen!

1. Frutiyogurth

There isn’t much to say about this place except that it’s delicious! Located right in the heart of Playa del Carmen, this place is economic and serves rather healthy but amazing food. Salads, sandwiches, soups, eggs, and even chilaquiles, all with a special touch! The best part? Accompanying your meal with a delicious natural fruit frappe. I’m getting hungry!

2. Fruta Madre

This exotic restaurant is quite new in Playa del Carmen but has already captivated our hearts (and palates). You can choose between refreshing fruit sushi, hearty salads and even vegetarian burgers! It is located right outside Playacar where 10th Avenue starts. This is Mexican and Italian cuisine with a twist.

 photo Fruta Madre_zpsi5y9grlw.jpg

3. Los Aguachiles

This restaurant is quite famous – and perfectly located! Playa del Carmen is a fishing town and fish restaurants are everywhere. However, Los Aguachiles has something about it that keeps you coming back. Whether you’re having a delicious shrimp cocktail or some fish tacos, thinking of this place will have you drooling!

 photo Los Aguachiles_zps6c7fcyyl.jpg

4. Cheester’s

This pasta restaurant is nowhere near the touristy area but completely worth a visit. Their motto is that if you’re sitting across someone you are not allowed to use your cellphone, which is great for sharing with friends! Their plates are huge and worth splitting between two (and sometimes even three) people. Whether you’ve chosen one of their famous pastas or are going for a chic salad, this place will not disappoint.

 photo Cheesterrsquos_zpstpadupdd.jpg

5. Plank

And of course, we couldn’t forget the king of brunch! This chic restaurant offers a variety of brunch options, from omelets to molletes and chicken enchiladas (yum!). This restaurant is nothing but a mixture of saliva-producing tastes that will leave you wanting more and more.

My tummy is growling just from writing about my top five lunch (and brunch) favorites! Which ones are yours? Go ahead and give these a try, you will not regret it. Remember, everybody loves lunch, so call up an old friend and head over to a new restaurant every week.

If you like breakfast here are the best places to have breakfast at in Playa del Carmen.

Where to Eat When Celebrating Holy Week & Easter in Playa del Carmen

Holy Week, according to Christianity, commemorates the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. It is celebrated every year between March and April, depending on the year. The Holy Week takes off with Palm Sunday, which represents the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday and Holy Wednesday follow Palm Sunday, eventually arriving to Holy Thursday. Thursday’s mass gives opening to the following three days, known as Easter Triduum, which is made up of Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday (or Resurrection Sunday).

According to Roman Catholic religion, Jesus was sacrificed on Good Friday; Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday represent his resurrection. While in big cities around Mexico, and the world, you may encounter religious processions, and even see people committing to sacrifices (such as actually carrying a cross on their back, beating themselves with whips, or simply walking barefoot), the biggest sacrifice most people will make is the abstinence from meat.

Holy Week and Easter Sunday are fasting days. Traditionally, fasting meant that you would sacrifice to only one meal per day on Holy Thursday and Good Friday; abstinence from meat (red and white) is the most common sacrifice people make these days. Hence, fish and vegetables become the main ingredients during this time.

If you are looking to keep true to this sacrifice, check out the Top 5 Seafood Restaurants where you can enjoy delicious meat-free meals during Holy Week and Easter:

  • Los Aguachiles

Where: 5th Avenue with Constituyentes Avenue, Downtown, Playa del Carmen; or 34th Street with 25th Avenue

Price range: $$

What you can eat: An aguachile is a chili-spiked ceviche in Mexico, and this restaurants lacks none of it! You can expect to eat tacos, tostadas, ceviches, cocktails and more. Everything comes accompanied by delicious home-made salsas.

Price range: $$ – $$$

What you can eat: Blue Lobster Seafood Restaurant offers all types of seafood and fish, from soups to salads, to appetizers, to risotto, fish fillets, fish pastas, and much more. You can also order their famous lobsters (they’re called Blue Lobster for a reason) and enjoy a delicious meat-free meal.

  • La Fisheria

Where: 5th Avenue between 22nd and 24rd Streets, Downtown, Playa del Carmen
