When visiting Playa del Carmen, La Cueva del Chango (Monkey's Cave) is an especially good choice for breakfast. Nestled in a jungle setting with Maya gods peeking through the patio décor, breakfast favorites include fresh papaya, huevos a la méxicana (scrambled eggs with onion, tomato and chiles), warm tortillas and rich, steaming coffee.
For lunch and dinner, tried and true stand-bys feature: enchiladas with tangy mole, sprinkled with sesame seeds; homemade empanadas with huitlacoche corn truffle and classic chilaquiles - with or without - chicken. Chips, pico de gallo salsa and guacamole are - of course - a "must."
An ample wine list, beer and selection of Tequilas, Mescals and other "spirits" are available.
