Restaurants, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

So where do people go out to eat in this little town of Puerto Aventuras? Surprisingly, for such a small town, there are many restaurants all within a stone's throw of each other clustered around the main shops/business area. All are within easy walking distance of almost anywhere in the town.  From some of the condos on the marina, you can almost stumble out your door into a restaurant table they are so close. 

Truth be told, we haven't eaten a meal at any of them except for carry-out pizza twice. Being rather focused and committed vegans, we have instead relied upon the twice-weekly fresh farmer's market to supply almost all of our food for home preparation. Rice, pasta, bread, and other packaged goods we purchased at Chedraui on the main highway or the local Oxxo. Chedraui is a Wal-mart-like store with food and other household stuff and Oxxo is like a 7-11 convenience store in the U.S. It is not unreasonable to walk to Chedraui and either walk back or get a taxi back if your purchases are too heavy (50 pesos ride over, 60 pesos back). It's more coming back because it takes the driver longer to get through the security gate.

Here is a sampling of many/most of the eateries in no particular order.












Pizza delivery to our door was free. "Propina" happily offered by me and gratefully accepted by the driver. I gave him 25 pesos - not sure if that was generous or a cheapskate but it's less than $2 USD.  The "2-for-1" medium vegetarian pizzas cost 170 pesos total - about $13 USD.

  1. Looks like most of the restaurants keep one particular sign maker in business

    1. Sharon, the produce market was every Wednesday and Saturday near the gazebo in Centro. Seemed like 8am-4pm were the hours but flexible. It's really popular, we went earlier rather than later. They like small bills and coins, too. Can't say about bicycles. Good luck and enjoy.
