Fodor's Expert Review Los Aguachiles

$$ Playa del Carmen Mexican

This upscale taquería is an anchor of Playa's alternative culinary scene, reimagining tacos sautéed in olive oil and topped with cucumber or strawberry-habanero salsa. Local favorites include shrimp tacos with "black gold" (beans), fish ceviche with green salsa, and fish tacos wrapped in your choice of corn tortilla, flour tortilla, or a giant leaf of Bibb lettuce. If you're not into spicy food, be careful with the house specialty aguachile. It's an in-the-know spot for lunch or dinner. You'll find another Los Aguachiles location on Avenida Constituyentes (and one in Tulum and another in Cancún).
