Crazy About Tacos

Skip the normal tourist traps and dive into the favorite food spots where locals like to eat, drink, and hang out. The fun begins as you are greeted at your ship and escorted to Playa Del Carmen on a 45-minute ferry ride.

Once in the city, you will learn about the history of the area before getting your first lesson on the art of taco building and eating. Learn how to eat tacos like a Mexican as you discover the many different flavors and textures.

Sample the pollo rostizado, a flavorful rotisserie chicken taco, then try the tacos de guisado, a typical Morelos state taco that includes rice. Pork fans will love the tacos de carnitas from the state of Michoacan, while the tacos de barbacoa from Hildalgo will surprise you with its subtle flavors from wrapped lamb cooked in agave leaves for over 12 hours. Not to be missed are the tacos de canasta, originally from Tlaxcala, served in fabric napkins that steams the tacos for a nice, soft texture.

After mastering the true art of taco eating you will make your way to a tortilleria, or local tortilla factory, to learn the ins-and-outs of the tortilla making process. From there you can start walking off your taco belly as you explore Playa Del Carmen or make your way back to the cruise ship.

This 6 hour tour promises you a panza llena corazon contento, or full belly and happy heart, as you take taco eating to a whole notha level. Reserve your spot today.

Luis was awesome!
February 19, 2020
Experienced this on Saturday, February 15, 2020. Luis was a great guide. He was amazing at keeping the conversation going with complete strangers while taking us all around the streets of Playa del Carmen to experience several incredible tacos. We had some extra time so Luis also took us to a rooftop to enjoy a margarita (FYI: He does a rooftop tour, too). PERFECT DAY!
