When I found out that Eat Mexico had started doing walking food tours of Cancun, I jumped at the chance to work with them again. I had done their walking food tour of Mexico City last year and knew I was in for a good time.
One of the reasons I most wanted to do this tour was to see a different side of Cancun. I’ve been to Cancun several times but only doing the touristic things. Nearly six million international tourists visit Cancun per year, most of them never leaving the hotel zone. Many of them don’t even leave their resorts. I feel like it’s difficult to find authentic experiences in Cancun. This tour would be a way to experience a part of Cancun that many tourists never see.
We started the tour at an authentic market located near the central bus terminal in town. The market was filled with locals going about their shopping, picking out fruits, vegetables and fresh meats from the many vendors.
But how does that affect the food scene in Cancun?
Our eighth and last official stop was for pozol- an ancient pre-Hispanic drink made of chocolate and fermented corn dough.
