Lots of flavors here in Playa del Carmen.  People live here from all over the world.  People visit here from all over the world.  What a melting pot of culture and diversity -and food.

Sunday we went to the…

Taste of Playa International Food Festival

Taste of Playa is a culinary event in Playa del Carmen that celebrates the creativity and cultural influences of chefs throughout the Riviera Maya.

You buy tokens (10 for 100 pesos) and pay 1, 2, or 3 tokens for mini portions of food from different restaurants in town.

It was a fun night.  We discovered a Thai place we did not know about and are looking forward to eating at.  Sampled some yummy pastries.  Managed not to lose any kiddos in the crowd.  And bumped into a bunch of friends.

    Yum! That stuff looks delicious. Now you’ve got me in the mood for Thai. :)And it’s a good thing you didn’t lose any kids because it looks really crowded, but fun. Love Monique <3

      hahaha Monique. It’s funny you say that because we had a little chat with the kiddos that if anyone got lost they should go to the big statue you see in the photos. 🙂
