Luis and Tara did a wonderful job cooking, for our group of eight, an authentic Mexican meal. It was so nice having them come into the house and having them do all the meal preparations, cooking and cleaning when we were all done. We were able to relax out in there backyard sipping on a few of the yummy cocktails that Luis drummed up. The meal itself was incredible with an assortment of appetizers, chicken/steak/shrimp fajitas and a wonderful homemade salsas. We had enough leftovers for a few additional meals during our stay. Luis and Tara where great hosts and it was nice to pick there brain on things to do in Playa as well as ask questions about the culture. If you are looking for a nice relaxing night in, I highly recommend A Bit of Home for your next meal.
We used A Bit of Home in Mexico for a group trip of 4 couples renting a home in Playa del Carmen in February 2014. This is an absolute no-brainer service! Even though I have been to Playa del Carmen multiple times over the last 10 years and know roughly where big box and small grocery stores are located, it was absolutely worth it to have the house provisioned before our group arrived.
Between 4 couples, there were plenty of requests for snacks and food as our group planned to eat breakfast and lunch at the rented house and then eat dinner out on 5th avenue every night. I would have easily spent an entire day driving around, or catching taxis around Playa del Carmen to find, purchase and bring home the items we wanted. The estimate was within $10 of the actual quote, and the company worked quickly and efficiently over email and PayPal.
We only had to “go out” to get more beer & chips a few days into the trip; otherwise everything was stocked and put away the moment we walked in the house! If you are traveling with kids this is essential, avoid packing all their “extras” (diapers, etc.) or stressing that you have to find them first thing!
Definitely going back to Playa del Carmen and definitely using this company again! It’s vacation after all!!!
“We used A Bit of Home In Mexico provisioning services on our recent stay in Playa, specifically grocery shopping. It was so wonderful to just show up at our vacation rental (at midnight) and have a refrigerator full of food! They are so friendly and helpful, they asked all the right questions, offered replacement suggestions on items that weren’t readily available and reminded me of items that I just plain forgot! Tara and Luis were so quick to respond to all of our requests. Thank you so much for everything!!”
A very helpful service! We arrived with 4 kids, tired and hungry, and found our rental home stocked and ready for the start of our vacation. Along with standard items (such as milk, toilet paper, cereals, vegetables) from a supermarket, Tara and Luis went to a butcher shop for a special cut of pork, and they brought some local treats like pico de gallo, oaxaca cheese, and a high-quality tequila I requested. I was very pleased!
What a joy it was to arrive in Playa to a kitchen stocked with fresh fruit, vegetables, drinks and other necessities for our stay. On previous trips, our first task when arriving was making a trip to multiple stores to get us settled in for the week. Instead of having to do this, we were able to fill our cooler with drinks and snacks and head immediately to the beach. A Bit of Home was extremely easy to work with before our trip even began. They kept us in the loop in the days leading up to our stay and helped if there were any questions. I would definitely use them again to get our trip started on the right note.
