Being abroad on important national holidays sometimes isn’t easy. So, for the Americans who want to celebrate Thanksgiving, we have good news: it is not an unknown holiday in Playa del Carmen, and actually quite popular, with many restaurants offering special menus for this occasion. Here are Playa Palms’ favorite places for your Thanksgiving dinner:
Enjoy a traditionally served holiday buffet just around the corner from Playa Palms Beach Hotel. With a gourmet turkey and delicious sides such as creamy pumpkin soup, potato soufflé, and traditional pumpkin pie. If their Thanksgiving dinner is just half as good as what they use to serve on normal days, you will feel in gourmet heaven.
Price: 700 Pesos
La Casa del Agua
One more year, La Casa del Agua, famous for its “casual fine dining”, prepares a special Thanksgiving menu. Their turkey comes with specialties such as pumpkin risotto and mashed sweet potatoes.
Price: 650 Pesos
This is the ideal location for you if you’re looking for some party after the dinner. Because if you pay a little more you are invited to the Jack Daniels Open Bar. Cheers! But also the turkey itself is quite irresistible, and they probably offer the widest array of side dishes. Among them a variety of salads, antipasti, cold cuts, soups, and homemade bread. And last but not least, you might fall in love with the ocean view…
Price: 790 Pesos (Open Bar: 450 Pesos)
How about Thanksgiving right at the beach? After all, there’s a reason why you traveled all the way to Playa del Carmen. C-Grill, just about 2 blocks from Playa Palms Beach Hotel, invites you to a yummy 3-course menu with a complimentary welcome drink. You start the evening with a sweet potato and cinnamon spiced soup, the turkey comes with traditional stuffing and creamy mashed potatoes among other yummy sides, and the pumpkin cheesecake as a dessert already makes our mouths start to water.
Price: 750 Pesos
It doesn’t always have to be overly fancy to be delicious – and we are sure that Carboncitos will proof this one more time. They will be serving a cream soup, roasted stuffed turkey and of course a dessert this Thanksgiving. Their convenient location right on the 5th Avenue makes it an ideal spot if you want to go to a sports bar, later on, to watch a little football. (For example here).
Price: 420 Pesos
Whatever your plans are this Thanksgiving, and wherever you are from, let’s just all be thankful for sunshine, no snow, warm weather, beautiful beaches, and Tequila!
