There are nearly 75 restaurants in Playa del Carmen offering foods of every type and price range. There are also some excellent family friendly restaurants, though the more touristy places are more expensive. La Cueva Del Chango with its turtle pond and patios is a great family friendly option that won’t break the bank. There are also various pizza stands with prices ranging from $10-20. As is the case in much of Mexico, the street food is not to be missed. Simply walk south down fifth avenue until you reach the pier and taxi stand. There are generally five or six carts there serving tacos of various types. Every seafood taco is generally outstanding, along with the carnitas, pollo, and chorizo. Also, try the stuffed poblano tacos. Tacos are typically in the US$2-3 range. For the best and freshest tacos arrive mid-morning before the lunch rush as the carts are setting up.
