Mexican Villas For Food Lovers: The Ultimate Culinary Escape
If you’re craving a foodie getaway, then Mexico should, without doubt, be top of your list. Not only does the country have some of the finest chefs in the world, but the glorious weather and diverse geography provide a wealth of fresh ingredients. There are vacation villas for food lovers dotted across Mexico but, to help you narrow down your options, here are some of the very finest.
Rental villas for food lovers
Where: Boca de Tomatlan, Puerto Vallarta
Amenities: Staff (house manager, chef, waiters, bartenders), swimming pool, on-site panga boat, snorkel equipment, on-site river, coffee stations, A/C, barbeque, kayaks, SUPs, game table, Apple TV, fire pit
A secluded villa rental, La Troza, is run by the owners of La Palapa, one of the finest beach-side restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. With that pedigree, you’ll be unsurprised to hear the private chefs at La Troza are among the very best in the area. Guests can expect high-end cuisine throughout the day starting with a varied breakfast buffet leading to a mouth-watering lunch and a gourmet dinner. Waiters and bar staff provide the service a resort can offer within the privacy of your luxury rental.
A typical day starts with a gourmet buffet which includes fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, bacon, sausage, toast, and freshly baked pastries accompanied by coffee, tea, and juice. Dinners can range from three-course meals to family-style sharers while lunch offers local and international options. A stay at La Troza will also include snacks and house drinks all-day. How and when you eat is very much up to you. Speak to the highly-trained chef who can help you craft the perfect foodie experience.
Where: Punta Mita
Amenities: Open air palapa, media room, business center, infinity pool, staff (general manager, chef, waiters, kitchen, housekeeping), fire pit, three golf carts, Escalade with driver, fitness center, spa room, Jacuzzi, kayaks, SUPs
The gorgeous Palmasola in Punta Mita offers the private dining experience of a lifetime. Each day, the highly professional and experienced private chefs put together a custom menu of local delights and international delicacies. You’re invited to approve the menu or edit it to your tastes. Palmasola’s general manager, Mike O’Hara, will also work closely with the chefs to pair exquisite wines from across Latin America with the meals. Dietary needs and requirements can be taken into account, plus children’s menus can be created for the little ones.
Perhaps most excitingly, Palmasola has a number of gorgeous spaces that can be magically transformed into different dining areas. The dining palapa, for example, offers a more formal setting for two to 14 guests. Las Estrallas, the rooftop terrace, offers dining underneath the stars for two to 16 people. For a more relaxed ambiance, you may opt for the palapita which provides an intimate covered space on the beach for two to eight guests. Overall, there are 15 different dining spots for visitors to choose from. However, if somewhere different catches your eye, just let the staff know, and they can set up a dining area for you there.
Villa Zacil Na and Casa del Agua
Where: Puerto Aventuras, Riviera Maya
Bedrooms: 5 and 4 respectively
Amenities (Villa Zacil Na): Staff (chef, butler, villa manager, concierge, housekeeper), A/C, flat-screen TVs, barbeque, iPod dock, snorkel equipment, beach accessories, kayaks, washer/dryer, heated infinity pool, al-fresco shower, flotation devices, computers

The twin pleasures of Villa Zacil Na and Casa del Agua offer an exquisite dining experience in the Riviera Maya.

No matter which option you choose, you are in for the culinary experience of a lifetime.
The villas’ private chef will design each meal around the specific tastes of the guests using fresh, local ingredients. The incredible meals receive regular compliments including this praise from a traveler with Journey Mexico: “The food was quite simply outstanding. The chef could have set up a restaurant, and we would have paid to go to it!”
