The Riviera Maya Has a New Destination Restaurant
The hottest boutique hotel in the Riviera Maya is opening a new destination restaurant this month.
The new Estero restaurant will open its doors at La Casa de la Playa on Dec. 19.
Estero is the brainchild of world-renowned Virgilio Martinez, most famous for his Central eatery in Lima, one of the top-ranked restaurants in the world.
The new culinary concept at Grupo Xcaret’s hotel will mix flavors from Mexico and Peru, with flavors spanning indigenous Peruvian ingredients, Caribbean coastlines, the Amazon rainforest and the Andes Mountains.
“We are excited to offer chef Virgilio Martinez’s culinary creations for the first time to non-guests of La Casa de la Playa through his concept, Estero,” said Francisco Gutiérrez, Chief Hotel Officer at Xcaret. “We believe that food enthusiasts will be amazed at the flavor combinations and presentations developed at Estero and are proud to continue to be a culinary epicenter in Mexico.”
Estero joins culinary offerings by celebrity Chef Martha Ortiz and the team of Daniel Rodrigo and Patricio Riviera-Rio at the hotel.
The 63-suite hotel is one of the most talked-about boutiques in the wider region.
“I am honored to be more connected with the fascinating country that is Mexico. I do believe Latin American gastronomy is living its highest moment. These connections and exchanges only bring us closer, helping to value and preserve our identities,” Martinez said in a statement.
