My family has had a house down in Playa Del Carmen since 2000. I've experienced major growth in "Playa" as local's call it, over the last decade. Once a small fishing village, Playa has become an urban sprawl attracting about 2 million tourist per year. A dizzying amount of new restaurants have opened over the years to support the tourism growth. Here is a list of my local favorites. Buon Appetito!
