The first thing that impressed me about this place was the orange juice that was freshly squeezed (not from a can or carton). It only went uphill from there! My husband and I ordered the sirloin steak tacos and fish'n chips (catch of the day) our first visit, and the second visit, we got the grill for two, which was... More

GF and I shared the mixed grill, not super cheap at around 28 dollars but very well prepared, moist chicken, delicious steak and more than enough for 2. Was worried because we were the only table but honestly some of the most tender and flavorful steak I've had recently. very good service and relaxing outdoor dining

Caminito is on 10th Ave and is not as crazy as 5th Ave. We enjoyed guacamole and several other dishes. We were the only customers. Service was friendly and price was reasonable. We would certainly recommend this stop for your next meal in Playa del Carmen.

Well worth the stop and T/A advice has come through again ! I had the freshly made beef and cheese turnovers 25 pesos and they were great. This place is great for a lunch or dinner stop
