10:10 AM – 11:00 AM: Traditional Tacos
Our first culinary stop is just a few meters from our meeting point. We will start off at a local’s favorite, not just locals from Puerto Morelos but Cancun, Tulum and Playa del Carmen. We will have to choose between 30 different taco filling options that come with handmade corn tortillas and various salsas choices. Enjoy a traditional Agua Fresca (fresh fruit drink) made with seasonal fruit. Here we will discuss the importance of the tortilla in Mexican culture and begin to understand that Mexican cuisine is more robust and regional than people know.
After our taco stop, we will stroll to our next culinary experience. Have a look at the little chozas (traditional houses) that local fishermen and their families call home. We will taste a traditional frozen fruit ice cream as a local would.
11:00 AM – 11:45 AM: Street Food
Our next stop – the heart of Puerto Morelos neighborhood at a family home where we try a traditional and very popular Yucatan pork dish. This dish is a perfect example of Mexican food has been influenced by international flavors and culinary techniques.
Next stop – on to the beach where we taste grilled chicken and fresh fish caught right before we arrive.
11:45 AM – 12:30 PM: Fresh Fish
Grilled chicken is a local treat with a secret recipe that is so very different from any grilled chicken you have had before.
After our chicken interlude we head to the beach to experience an age old recipe that uses fresh fish. This meal would not be complete with out a cold cerveza as you admire the clear blue of the Caribbean Sea.
1:00 PM: End Of Tour
This is where we say good bye, leaving you to spend the rest of the day on the beach, or make your way back to your hotel. We are happy to help make arrangements for taxis or call our friends if you want to spend the next few hours snorkeling.
