What are the best breakfasts to try while vacationing in Mexico?

The Mayan Riviera is renowned for the versatility of its cuisine. Foodies will feel pampered by the amazing haute cuisine on offer, especially the many “mestizo” dishes, as well as those that make the most of their marine ingredients. Within just a few steps, those who prefer street food will come across taco stands and “fondas” (informal eateries) where they’ll be able to taste authentic local offerings.

Keep walking and you’ll come across steakhouses, fusion food and avant-garde cuisine restaurants that will take your palate places you’d never dreamed of. However, we can’t talk about food in the Mayan Riviera and not discuss the most important meal of the day: breakfast.

With so many activities available, including adventure tourism options, experiences, places to swim, archaeological sites to visits, sports to practice (shopping included), etc., you’ll need a healthy breakfast, rich in protein, vitamins and carbohydrates to keep you going all day long. In Playa del Carmen, taste and nutrition can easily go together. Our years of experience allow us to list some of the breakfast options that have enchanted those who visit the Mayan Riviera. If you haven’t tried them all, we truly recommend them.



This is a miracle dish for those looking to heal after a long night: chips, salsa (as spicy as you like), onions, cream, cheese and your choice of either chicken, eggs or beef, among other options. Chilaquiles are a delicious, revitalizing meal that will bring the color back to your cheeks, and if there’s still a party in your heart, it’ll be exactly what you need to keep the fun going.



People in the Yucatan Peninsula know how to feed the hunger that comes from days of fun, physical activity and discovering landscapes that you’d only dreamt of before. Cochinita pibil and lechón al horno, two traditional pork-based dishes, are some of their most iconic breakfast options, and they’re known for their deliciousness and nutritional value, which combines animal protein, carbs and fiber. Habanero peppers, renowned for their healing properties, are optional.


Eggs Motul-style

The best-kept secret of breakfasts in Yucatan. Imagine a freshly made tostada; add beans, a fried egg, a delicious sauce, peas, ham, cheese and a touch of habanero. As delicious and simple as it sounds, the combination has been perfected throughout years, and it’s become a favorite option for breakfast in the region.
