What you'll do

Let’s get a blast of flavors; In seven different stops i will show you a great variety of the best Local snacks around the peninsula, such as Marquesitas, Panuchos, Tamales and many type of tacos. Listen a great explanation about the Mayan civilization while we walk around the place, with this you will get a delicious true Mexican experience.
The last stop its at the same place of the meeting point, so we finish exactly where we start it.
Other things to note
My only two recommendations before you take this experience will be.
1.- GO HUNGRY!
2.- INVITE YOUR BEST FRIEND ( FOOD ITS ALWAYS BETTER IF YOU SHARE IT WITH A FRIEND )

Where you'll be

We will do a small loop around the corners, two blocks away from the 5th avenue,
where we will visit the small vendors on the street, that you normally would avoid for the single reason that you maybe don't even know about how to ask for it or if the food its good or not. However this are the perfect places to give you an authentic point of view of the Mexican cuisine.

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 24 reviews.

Mauricio was a great host and we enjoyed the food tour; just wish we had more savory food rather than sweets. But throughly enjoyed the tour :)

Mauricio did a great job of explaining the history of the area and connected it to the food we ate. He brought us to places we definitely would have overlooked on our own. The food was awesome. We even went back the next day for some more. Highly recommend Mauricio’s tour to find some hidden gem food spots close to the tourist area.

We had a great time on this tour! Mauricio brought us to places we never would have tried on our own including an incredibly tasty carnitas spot and a roadside tamale stand. We enjoyed this tour and look forward to going back to the places he introduced us to.

We had a great time with Mauricio. He was very knowledgeable about the local foods as well as the history and origins behind them.

This was a wonderful food tour! Mauricio really could not have been better in any way. It felt like a new friend was showing me around town and offering me foods that he liked. The food was amazing-- the pork tacos were a favorite of mine.

Mauricio is an absolute treasure. We can not recommend him enough! We came down to stay on a resort for a few days, but wanted to make sure we at least spent a little time getting to know the culture of the area. Mauricio is not only extremely well versed in the history of the Yucatán, but he’s a local who will make sure you get an authentic Mexican experience on his tour. He is clearly extremely passionate about what he does, and that shows during the tour. The only recommendation we have is to come hungry because it is WORTH it! Thank you Mauricio for the best first day of our trip!
