One great restaurant to choose for a one stop in Playa

My family of five will be staying at the Iberostar Tucan for 6 nights in December. We are looking at one day off the resort in Akumal for turtles, snorkeling, beach and more turtles!

We are planning one lunch / or dinner in Playa on the way back. Suggestions?

Here's what I have gleamed so far: Dona Mary, El Oasis and El Fogon.

We are from San Diego, Ca and LOVE mexican food.

Parameters - GREAT food.

Have at it friends. This forum has been so imformative as I have transitioned from Negril, Jamaica to Riviera Maya in my travels.

Thanks in advance!

Where were you going to snorkel? Playa has very little . Akumal has excellent snorkeling and is a great day trip. It's about 35 minutes south of Playa. Also has great restaurants--you can get a lot of info at Locogringo.com. We stayed at the Riu Palace Mexico last year which was very nice. This year we opted to stay in a condo in north Playa del Carmen and then a villa in Akumal. Both places have excellent restaurants!

Summer 05,

We are a taking a day trip to Akumal specifically to snorkel. Figure we set camp at Akumal Bay and take a cart over to Yal Ku Lagoon for more snorkeling.

Can you suggest a great Mexican restaurant for a late lunch / early dinner on the way back? Thanks.

I second Yaxche for the one restaurant you should go to in Playa. It's a Mayan Restaurant and serves wonderful dishes.
