It was such an interesting, educational and delicious experience!
My husband and I have been to Playa del Carmen 5 times over the last 10 years, but had never ventured past 5th ave and really experienced the city until we took the tour with Cristobal. It was such an interesting, educational and delicious experience. Every bite of food we had was so delicious and I was completely stuffed by the last stop. Cristobal was a great guide and we will definitely try his ... more Puerto Morelos tour next time we are in the area.
