Most people who have considered visiting Cancun think that all they will do is lying on its sandy beaches and swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Even though these are things that almost everyone looks for, Cancun offers many attractions to explore and, above all, to taste. Thus, you should taste Cancun through its two most famous seafood recipes: ceviche and fish tacos.

Cancun, a Paradise on Earth

Cancun, known as the gate to the Mayan world, is one of the most beautiful coastal destinations in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, in the Yucatan Peninsula. In the past, this city used to be just a small, quiet town only known by few people (mostly locals). All changed after the 70s when the federal government made an important investment to boost the tourism industry in that region. Since then, Cancun has become one of the most popular vacation spots in Mexico mainly due to the amazing design and top-quality service of hotels, the sandy white beaches, the turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea and a wide range of fun attractions. In addition, another impressive feature of modern Cancun is the great food you will find, especially in its seafood recipes.

Fish Tacos

tacos - bionicgrrrl

This recipe originated in the state of Baja California and; later, it made its way throughout most of the country. In fact, it became so famous that in each region you may find a recipe that portrays the typical flavors, colors and condiments of that particular place. Cancun is not the exception to this and this city has also its own special fish taco. One of the best places to try Cancun’s tacos is Las Pescadillas in Dolphins Beach, in front of the Nichupte Lagoon. This eatery is well known among the locals; in fact, its real name is El Galeon del Caribe (The Galleon of the Caribbean) but everyone calls it Las Pescadillas due to the most famous dish: the pescadillas, which are small crispy fish tacos. Another excellent place to visit is El Fish Fritanga, winner of the 2014 Certificate of Excellence given by TripAdvisor, in which you can enjoy a lovely environment, reasonable prices and top-quality fish tacos (with fresh tortillas, ingredients and fish).

Ceviche, a Widely Known Dish

Besides fish tacos, another well-known dish in Cancun, as well as in other parts of Mexico, is ceviche. Ceviche is a kind of seafood made from fresh fish which is marinated in lemon or lime juice. The acid of the juice helps coagulate the proteins of the fish and, thanks to this, it can get effectively cooked. Furthermore, the ceviche can be seasoned with tomatoes, chopped onions, chiles, cilantro, salt and coriander. And, it is usually accompanied by other dishes that complement its flavor such as sweet potato, lettuce, corn, avocado or plantain (a cooked fruit). But, there is not a unique recipe for ceviche and many other types of fish and shellfish can be used. In Cancun, it can also be prepared with shrimp, octopus, squid, tuna and mackerel and you can find it served in cocktail cups too.

As you can see, Cancun can show so much more than sun, beaches and a turquoise sea. Trying its local cuisine is also a great way to explore a diferent side of this city. Besides, it is exciting as hell too! So, don’t hesitate to visit Cancun and get ready to taste the best flavors of Mexico.
