What this dinner is about
There are three main principles to this dinner experience:
- Great food and drink.
- Social interaction with fellow travelers.
- To have a fun and enjoyable time.
This dining experience has been set up by people that travel and understand what makes a good meal. Your dinner comes with a host that will guide you through the experience. This is meant to be a fun evening with good food and conversation, the things that make great dinners memorable.
For people that travel, you often don’t get to sit down to a meal with other people. This dinner lets you have dinner and also “break bread” sort of speaking, with fellow travelers.
What is on the menu?
The menu was designed and collaborated with Eva Millan. Eva Millan was a finalist on MasterChef in Spain season 1 and one of the top chefs in the Riviera Maya. The meal features a history of the culinary influences in the Yucatan area of Mexico. What is nice about the menu is the ability to substitute items if you have a food allergy or restriction.
You can expect some of the traditional ingredients that were used by the Maya. There also have been influences from Europe and the middle east in the area. This has all combined to create a rich tapestry of flavors with local ingredients. You will fine ingredients like chaya, epazote, corn, yucca, habanero, sour orange and chocolate.
Where the dinner is held and how to get there
The Traveler’s Table has procured a prime spot at a private beach club just outside of Playa Del Carmen. This remote stretch of beach is the perfect place at sunset to relax and unwind for a very enjoyable evening. There is no one else around except the people that come for dinner and the people serving it.
When you book this dinner experience your transportation is included. This is good since this is about enjoying and not worrying about anything else.

This looks like a great dinner to attend. Nice!
This looks awsome, just what we were looking for. We have a specail event and need a special place to celebrate.
We did one of these group dinners and it was a lot of fun. Not only interacting with other people but enjoying good food and drink.
We did the Travellers table on 26th August and had a fantastic evening. We met other couples from America, France and others from the Uk.
We played a game to start before sitting down to make a Mayan cocktail. The food then began coming out which was all fantastic and our host was very informative about the food and it’s originality.
To top our evening off we was lucky enough to see a turtle nest hatch and help them to the sea.
I would recommend this trip to anyone going to Mexico.
Hello Mandy. Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad you enjoyed this dinner as much as we did.
what if you are staying in a hotel in Playa Del Carmen
They pick people up from hotels. So you can book this and they take you there. Almost everyone that comes is staying in a hotel, so this is common.
