La Cueva del Chango
Playa del Carmen,
Meaning “the monkey cave,” La Cueva del Chango is an immersive dining experience. The restaurant is designed to resemble a cave, complete with small waterways, lush tropical foliage, and a pair of resident spider monkeys. The Mexican fare includes chicken in mole sauce with beans and rice, as well as tuna with a sesame seed and cascabel-chile crust. Juices and milkshakes made with fresh fruits are also served. Seating is available in the covered mock cave, as well as on the open-air patio.
