Located in the Riviera Maya. Tamarind is located at Banyan Tree Mayakoba. Travelers making a trip to Playa del Carmen should also think about dining here, since it's four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the northeast of the city.

Visitors wanting to combine their dining experience with some excellent sightseeing opportunities might enjoy visiting Ocean Research Facility. Do note, however, that if you're planning to visit, taking a taxi or having your own car might be necessary, as it's 16 and a half miles to the northeast.

Part of why people vacation in this vicinity is the presence of outdoor activities, like El Camaleon Mayakoba and El Faro. El Faro is the closest place to hit the beach, and lies just a quick trip from the restaurant.
