What to expect from Flavors of Mexico Food tour?
Indulge in a delicious selection of 7 local dishes and 3 refreshing Mexican Cocktails local restaurants that have defined Mexican gastronomy 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 restaurant 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 about each dish, drink and every restaurant on the tour.
