    Hey ladies,

    So we leave bright and early Saturday for Playa del Carmen!

    Sunday is my birthday so we want to go into town (probably Sat night) and go out to eat. Any suggestions for a great/fun restaurant??

    Oh, also we'd love to do an excursion while we're down there. I think PVBride mentioned something about a Mayan tour that was very memorable and worth it! I will try and find what that one is called but if you guys can recall it or have another one that was your fav please add it to the list!

    Thanks!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      NegroSol has really great food, not huge portions but I was blown away by the flavors. Its on calle 14 bis between 1st and 5th Avenue.

      Ajua is a fun time. I like their pollo pibil, a local dish. They have live music and waiters that balance glasses on their head. It's on calle 4 between 5th and 10th.

      Rolandis is a really good value. Not overpriced, good portions, good food. It's at the south end of 5th in Paseo del Carmen.

      For excursions I would go to Altournative and see what they offer. They have stands all over fifth. They have a solid reputation and interesting activities.

        It was called The Mayan Encounter by Alltournative. It was INCREDIBLE!
        They have a detailed itenerary on their website. Also, I have tons of pictures from this if you want to see!

            It was pretty intense(I am terrified of heights!) but I'm really glad that we did it. If it seems like too much, there are tons of other tour options to choose from.

            I emailed you our pictures, just in case you change your mind :)

                Ajua sounds like a fun place! Thanks for the detailed suggestions. :)

                      Congratulations!!!
                      I love food and I am in the Food & Beverage and wedding business since a long time ago so i can suggest the following:

                      There is a casual, romantic and very good italian restaurant: "Pommarola" which is located in a steet besides the "Shangri-la" Hotel. The Pasta, european pizza and $$ are great!

                      "Babe's" is a noodle-asian restaurant that is next to the 5th. Avenue (Playa's main street) just in front of the "Basico" Hotel and "Starbucks Caf¨". I suggest not to eat in Babe's on your first days because it could be a bit heavy for your stomachs!! but definetely this is a good restaurant. Try the "Mojito's" and "Caipirhinas" but not too many!!

                      For a typical mexican breakfast try "La Cueva del Chango" which is next to the "Shangrila-Hotel" and also "The coffee press" on the calle 2 near the ocean. For a light lunch you can have a good sandwich in "Hot's" located in calle corazon. All of them are cheap and good!

                      For a fancy one the best is an italian restaurant inside of the Mayan Palace resort called "Tramonto". At the main gate you just have to tell them that you are going to have dinner there. It is a litlle expensive but it is the best!!

                      Good Luck, Happy Birthday and have fun!!!
