What to expect from the Flavors of Mexico Food Tour

Indulge in a delicious selection of 7 local dishes and 3 refreshing alcoholic drinks at restaurants locals love to go in Cancun. In the early years, Downtown Cancun’s easy access to local markets full of fresh meats, ingredients, condiments and fruits made it a target for local restaurants owners with knowledge from secrets and recipes from other parts of Mexico to open their doors.

Downtown Cancun has been transformed in several ways in the last few years. After struggling a bit earlier to attract tourism and even locals, Cancun’s central neighborhood has been repurposed with a new plan that included the opening of several hotels, hostels and restaurants that reactivated the once glorious activity of the beginnings of Cancun. When taking our food tour, you will be tasting a piece of Cancun’s history & culture on each bite & sip. Our tour starts with a comfortable hotel pick up, you will be greeted by our guide who will be the one in charge of sharing all the details & information each dish, drink and every restaurant on the tour.

Discover the best recipes from restaurants that Cancun locals have continued to love for the last 40 years


We recently went on this food tour, and it was excellent! We went to many local favorites, and along the way, learned a ton about the history of Cancun, its food, as well as Mayan culture and food as well!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour. We were picked up by a friendly driver is a spotless air-conditioned van and taken to the old downtown area of Cancun, which we never would have thought of exploring on our own
