Playa del Carmen's Gourmet Mayan Restaurant

One of the pleasures of living in Mexico in areas like the stretch known as the Riviera Maya – stretching from Cancun past Playa del Carmen to Tulum – is the fine dining available and the growing gourmet sector.

Playa del Carmen is a fine example of how international quality for a luxury lifestyle can be combined with deep-rooted local traditions. One restaurant on Fifth Avenue, the heart of the city’s downtown dining, shopping and nightlife area, has done an excellent job of presenting the fairly inaccessible traditions of Mayan cooking in a very ideal visual atmosphere and a high level of service and food quality.

This restaurant is called Yaxché, and has recently been recognized for its successful combination of these elements with the prestigious Five Diamonds Award 2010 from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. The recognition was specifically given for achieving very high quality standards in regional cuisine.

During the presentation of the award, Vice President of the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, Ulrich Swartz said he was honored to present this award in Playa del Carmen as a place that grown significantly in culinary culture to distinguish itself for this quality along side of its hospitality and warmth.

The truth is that those who buy Playa del Carmen real estate enjoy a very wide variety of life’s little luxuries, not only in the area of cuisine, but also in activities such as golfing and sailing, and, most certainly not the least of all, beaches which many consider to be the most beautiful in the world.; Mexico’s Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
