Local Eats in Mexico



We’ve got the 4-1-1 on local eats in a few of Mexico’s hotspots.

Becco Al Mare, one of the city’s finest restaurants, is a favorite of celebrities, and offers spectacular views of the Acapulco Bay.
• For Thai-Mex fusion cuisine, there’s Zibu.
• At La Perla at El Mirador Hotel, visitors can opt for a 3-course lunch or dinner and take in all the action of La Quebrada, the cliff from where the famous Acapulco divers jump.

• Sushi lovers should head to Yamamoto, Cancun’s oldest Japanese restaurant.
• Offering a European-influenced menu, the alfresco La Fonda del Zancudo is set in the ruins of an old house.
La Habichuela, serving seafood and Mexican specialties, is one of the city’s most iconic restaurants, and its open-air garden is the place to dine.

Puerto Vallarta
• The intimate, family-run Restaurante Gaby’s serves authentic Mexican food and the chef is on a mission to bring back lost Vallarta dishes.
• Taco tours by Vallarta Food Tours are a must, as visitors can walk or bike to the city- center, hang out with locals and taste typical street food.
Gaviotas at Sheraton Buganvilias is creating innovative Mexican dishes such as sopa de piedra, which is cooked using hot stones, or opt for the 5-course Chef’s Table.

Riviera Maya
El Hongo in Playa del Carmen is so much more than a pet-friendly restaurant—it’s
full of great food, drinks, and music. There are also free workshops for kids like painting and handicrafts.
• Opened just a year ago, StrEAT Park in Playa del Carmen is a truck park with five food trucks featuring Mexican gastronomy; there are live bands and a DJ.
• In Tulum, the Argentinian steakhouse La Estancia Jujeña serves breakfast, lunch and dinner made the traditional way.
