Many people visit the Mexican Caribbean to tour the ancient Maya temples and learn about a part of history that remains a mystery to us. One great way to truly immerse yourself in the Maya culture is by trying the food. Yaxche (pronounced "jag-shey") offers guests the opportunity to do just that.


Experience authentic Maya Cuisine from where the Maya Empire once stood. Dishes include tsotobilchay, a Maya tamale, chujuk ik, which is stuffed peppers, and more.

Yaxche is a bar and grill where they proudly serve their take on Mexican cuisine. Anticipate and dress for a dining experience that is informal. They are open for business during dinner only, so be sure not to miss their open hours.


Located near the center of downtown Playa del Carmen, It is on Eighth Street.

Feel free to merge restaurant visit with some local sightseeing options by heading to one of the many attractions in the vicinity, such as El Faro Lighthouse.

Some active guests also tend to love the availability of outdoor pursuits found throughout the region. Golfers eager to get in a few good swings will surely have a blast at this restaurant's closest golf facility, Playacar Golf Course, which can be found within traveling distance of Yaxche. And what makes a breezy round of golf even better? A nap afterwards at El Faro, which is the most nearby beach and is only a few hundred yards away. Besides these nearby options, you may find another beach and a second golf course, for those lazy afternoons spent entirely outdoors.
