Off the beaten path, Los Agua Chiles is one of Playa del Carmen's best kept secrets. This real neighbourhood restaurant serves hearty Mexican dishes, especially ceviche (marinated raw fish, lemon juice, and red onions), which is what the restaurant is famous for, as well as tacos and ultra-fresh seafood. Fill your corn tortillas with shrimp or tuna, coriander sauce, spicy Mexican sauce, creamed spinach, refried beans, spicy mushrooms, and, above all, the best guacamole in Playa del Carmen.
Its clientele of locals, tourists, and New Yorkers makes the atmosphere relaxed. Take a seat at one of the plastic tables looking out on 34th Street, enjoy complimentary homemade tortillas, and watch the world go by while you wait for your meal.
