Traditionally Dramatic

If you can tear yourself away from the selection of 12 on-site restaurants at Barcelo Maya Caribe, Aldea Corazon offers modern Mexican cuisine in a beautifully dramatic setting and is only a short drive away. Perched atop a small cenote amongst lush Mayan gardens, the establishment was designed in accordance with Mayan building traditions and is a sight to behold.

The ‘living’ walls are covered in plants, the main bar is built on stone and the surrounding Mayan ruins provide a majestic backdrop for meals under the stars. While unforgettable, the setting is just the accompaniment to favourite local dishes ranging from fresh fish to chicken mole to jicama tacos.

Simple and Delicious

Staying at the top-rated luxury resort in Playa Del Carmen will give you quick access to the richly flavoured, ocean-to-table El Muelle. The delightful restaurant mirrors a Caribbean fish market with wooden-plank floors, whitewashed tables and a chalkboard displaying the catch of the day, which is true to its claim and delivered every morning by local fisherman. The catch, whether its grouper, red snapper, or sea bass, is simply and delicately prepared, making diners order more to take back to the resort for later. Everything else on the menu is just as addictive, so expert to return again and again.

A Sea of Flavours

Who doesn’t want to be entertained while enjoying a delicious gourmet meal aboard an authentic pirate ship? As you sail across Caribbean waters on the deck of the Jolly Rogers, a collection of pirates will start the evening with fun activities and contests, before serving a lobster or surf in turf diner. After the meal, the fun continues with music, fireworks, and the “Last Pirate Night” live show. If only it was possible to have this much fun for every meal.
