The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hit the Jungle in Santa Teresa


4. Insider’s Tip

Hit the road to Malpais to buy the freshest cuts of fish.  

If you want to take advantage of your suite’s kitchen, skip the supermarkets in Santa Teresa and head to Malpais, a one-road town about a five-minute drive south. Stop by the small port at the southern tip where you’ll find fishermen selling their latest catch of tuna, wahoo, and mahi-mahi. Or, check out Product C in the Playa Carmen Mall, located behind Budget Car Rental, for cuts of fresh fish and prepared foods like ceviche and crab cakes.
