Long Weekend in Playa del Carmen.

sekelmaan | Oct 30, 2012 12:31 PM

I have been doing some research on PDC and have a huge list of places, thanks largely to Veggo and Porker, but some others as well. My issue is that my list is TOO huge. I am heading down this weekend from Thursday to Monday. I will have a car. We are staying at Mahekal. I will likely only be able to escape the resort a few times. I am very much into traditional food and eat everything. So if I can do just a few things what are the must dos?

Ideas so far:

I am very interested in the carts by the church at 5th and Juarez, but is that the same as the blue tarp at 30 and 30? Doesn't sound like it.

La Mission in Cozumel if I can get there, Bamba Jarocha if not and Bob's for shrimp tacos for dessert, again if i get to Coz.

Carnitas Teresita. I am fanatic about chicharron.

Taqueria Gomez. This sounds fun. Brains!

La Floresta para tacos con camerones.

El Tabano based on the recent ravings.

So, how is that list? Should I make any substitutions or am I missing anything?

Thanks very much!
