What to do in Cancún and the Riviera Maya
There is much more to do in the Riviera Maya than lying out on a Cancún beach. Stretching along the coastline between Cancún and Tulum, the Riviera Maya is full of possibilities for fun and adventure. From clambering among Tulum's ancient Maya ruins overlooking the turquoise sea to snorkeling among whale sharks, from swimming in cool, blue sinkholes like Gran Cenote to dancing the night away in a beachside open-air disco in Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya has something for everyone to do.

Fresh Seafood

Large arrow left

While searching for a venue for a late lunch in Playa del Carmen, we stumbled upon a seafood restaurant situated in a big palapa (straw hut) near our hotel.

The mixed ceviche was absolutely fresh and delicious, and came with octopus, crab, fish, prawns, tomato, onion and cilantro, avocado and of course lime. It turned out to be the best ceviche dish I had on my trip. We also enjoyed the other dishes of fish tacos, grilled fish and guacamole.

After our trip, we realised that it was actually quite a popular spot after seeing reviews on foodie and travel websites, despite its location off the tourist stretch. Prices are also affordable. So if you're looking for a no-frills seafood place in Playa del Carmen, give La Pesca a shot.
