Taste of Playa 4th Event a Huge Success

Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico: November 18, 2012 marked the 4th annual culinary event hosted by Taste of Playa’s eight executive committee members. The event took place at Parque Fundadores and ran from 3–9:00 PM local time. Taste of Playa, a premier international event, received an estimated 8,000 local and international visitors. Forty different restaurant and beverage participants offered tastings, ranging from 10-30 pesos each.

The goal of Taste of Playa's executive committee is to help a community program that will have a positive effect on the residents of Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.
