Playa Resturants - Yaxche Mayan, La Cueva Del Chango, other?
Have been doing some research on Playa Del Carmen. We are looking for a very cool restaurant where we could take family and friends for lunch that really has that WOW factor (beautiful tropical setting, etc).
Yaxche is really special, one of the only Mayan cuisine restaurants just off the 5th avenue...also check out the "Restaurante" on calle 26th with 5th avenue, great Italian food, very different from other restaurants since they import their ingredients...a must...check out Los Aluxes...a restaurant in a cave...takes a 5 min taxi drive but might be worth it...anotherone for good steaks and meat cuts from the grill (simple restaurant but meat is from north of Mexico...really really good!) is "Las Carnes CH"...on calle 1 sur with 10th street....or a typical Yucatecan restaurant you find on Corner Juarez with Federal street....great great food, a taste of local atmosphere...clean and safe...good luck!
