Carnitas and a visit to Puerto Aventuras

I had a few hours before taking a mini road trip with the Kumar’s and decided to go for a good walk around town. My plan was to go for more sushi but the restaurant I wanted to go to was not open yet so I did a coffee frappucino instead and saved my appetite for a late breakfast with Surendra, Carolyn and Nina. I walked from 5th Avenida Calle 10 and all the way to 5th Avenida and Calle 46. This was a good route to take as I only had to worry about vehicle traffic when I came to the Calle cross streets. I find many drivers tend to go fast in Playa, similar to San Pedro Cabs. If you are ever in Playa Del Carmen following info will  help you to get around the grid like town. Avenues run parallel to the ocean and are numbered in increments of five, while the the Calles or Streets are done in increments of two and run perpendicular to the beach.

The following 2 quotes are a really great description Carnitas Teresita: Nina Kumar ” Do not plan a Lipid test the same day you eat carnitas.” The Kinnons  “Liberally topped with chopped white onion, fresh cilantro and a medley of salsas, the mixture is delicious and addictive.” They also gave directions Carnitas Teresita is located on Calle 1 sur, just up from the corner of Avenida 20. I agree with both of them and totally enjoyed the crunchy melt in your moth pork tacos – good thing I can only fuel that new Mexican junk food addiction on vacation 🙂 Video of the guy chopping up the pork for our Carnitas.

We got our carnitas to go as the Kumar’s wanted to show me their new condo at Puerto Aventuras, which is a luxury marina community located 20 minutes south of Playa Del Carmen and 30 minutes north of Tulum Mayan Ruin site. Their place was fantastic, it was spacious and breezy with they had the best view. After our delicious lunch Surendra and Carolyn took me for a tour of the property while Nina got busy with school work. The 450 acre complex has everything onsite from restaurants and shops to a gym, a great swim up pool bar and so much more. I can totally see why the Kumar’s love living there.
