Tasting life at Paradise

Traveling with flavors


If I told you to imagine your favorite food, you are probably going to remember the taste and smell of a particular meal or you are going to remember the special occasions you had it or even the first time you tried it. Do you remember the taste of your last vacation? 




Since little kids and throughout our lives we built our gustatory memory, which is based on our experiences with flavors and tastes. This is why the sense of taste is an excellent company in every journey. It will allow us to try new sensations in the company of the smell and sight. Taste is undoubtedly an incredible and unequaled pleasure.

Because life at the sea is delicious, we want to wake up your thirst and hunger, so you start planning your next adventure. Join us to discover the flavors of the Riviera Maya.


It taste like a marquesita at Puerto Morelos


We can cheat sometimes and have dessert first. A warm walk through a picturesque town by the sea is a perfect scenario to enjoy a traditional sweet snack of the Mexican Caribbean. Its preparation can be found very similar to a crunchy crepe, more like a wafer. While visiting the pier do not forget to visit those little cars and have a delicious marquesita filled with Edam cheese, hazelnut cream or fruit jelly.


Taste like tequila and esquites at Xoximilco




This place is just a perfect example of all the tasty Mexican food and fun we can find at Riviera Maya. In Xoximilco we will find a real Mexican celebration, a splendorous night full of music and delicious dishes. A prove of this are the esquites, mature corn boiled and chopped piquin chiles, epazote, and salt. It is served hot in small cups and topped with lime juice, chile powder or hot sauce, salt, and mayonnaise (my mouth is watering).


Tequila is the host of every Mexican party, so this is no exception. Have a shot and enjoy the atmosphere of the canals of the Mayan jungle.


It taste like a Tikin Xic fish in a Caribbean island


This is another traditional flavor of the Mayan zone, from the shores of Yucatan to Quintana Roo. It is a perfect mixture of local and foreign ingredients with thousands of years of history. It consists of grilled fish seasoned with different kind of spices, like achiote and orange, typically served on banana tree leaves. Imagine yourself at the beach enjoying this delicious food.

It tastes like a Pai Ai pineapple drink at Xcaret




A journey that includes underground rivers and the culture and traditions of Mexico surrounded by the flora and fauna of the tropical jungle couldn’t end better than with a refreshing beverage served in a very original and fun way. This is even better if you are resting on the shore of a beautiful inlet. You will want to stay here forever with this combination of fresh fruits and liquors.


It tastes like a cold beer at Xel-Ha




Riviera Maya has a desirable weather all year long, just another excuse to book some days no matter what season it is. What about having a cold beer as enjoying the sun and the water of a paradisiac place like the inlet, rivers or hammock gardens at Xel Há? After a good swim, a beer is the perfect solution to continue enjoying one of the world’s Natural Wonders. That’s life!
