About The Author


    • Thank you Brad for the tips. We will keep adding places to this list like all our articles. We will have to stop by both the restaurants you mentioned.

  1. It seems like ceviche is the most common seafood in Playa. I guess there is not too much fish in the sea in front of Playa. That is ok, I like ceviche and your guides gives a lot of options.

  2. We stopped by Caguameria and tried some ceviche. Really good stuff! We agree with you that eh green ceviche is awesome. A new favorite in Playa.

  3. We went to Caguameria on your advice and have to say the ceviche there was delish! Nice hidden spot in Playa with good vibe.

  4. I mean to have the ceviche and Caguameria but the burger sounded so good, so I got that and my girl friend got the ceviche. Nice place and nice Mexican vibe.

  5. We tried El Doctorcito and Caguameria off this list. Both really nice options. There are so many good places to eat or maybe just your guides are so good, we find just the good restaurants.

  6. I had some friends in town this week so I wanted to take them to somewhere a little local feeling and Mexican. The Caguameria fit the bill great. We started off with the bone marrow tacos which we saw on your site and then finished off with ceviche. Great all around and the drinks with mezcal also made it s fun time.

  7. I am looking for the place somewhere in the 1st to 5th Avenue in the 40th Street area that had a giant standing lobster outside. They had great ceviche. Anyone know the location? Still there?

    • Hello Dave

      We remember taking a picture of that lobster but we think they have closed and the lobster is also gone.

  8. I’m looking for the best authentic margaritas in Playa, all fresh, is it still easy to find? Last time we were there, all the Margie’s came from the slush machine ? Counting the sleeps, only 28 more ????

    • Hello Toni

      Everyone has margaritas on the menu. Most of the bars and restaurants near or on 5th just serve “drinks”. Very few places have a true mixologist. It is good where every you go to sit at the bar and ask for what liquor you want. Axiote is a good restaurant with good drinks and Nau seafood restaurant as well. So many places change bar tenders that quality goes up and down. Overall we don’t think Playa ranks high in good drinks. Many locals often complain about it and drink at home. Bars like Dirty Martini have been around for a while and are popular with locals because of the good drinks, but that is mainly martinis, we are not sure if they have margaritas or how they are.

  9. New Cassa Cerviche on calle 24 mid block now from 30 ave
    I”m from Vancouver, BC and we have a lot of fresh seafood…the cerviche is outstanding, staff super friendly and decor very trendy, check out the cool entrance to an art gallery is a beer fridge!!!! reasonable pricing

    • Sounds like you enjoyed it! Thank you for your comments on our restaurants on our page. We see you are a foodie! That is great you are getting around.

  10. I’m wondering how many of these restaurants will make it through the pandemic and stay open. I have already hears many in Playa Del Carmen have closed.
