Wow, that article is perfect timing. Playa de Carmen is clear on the other side of the country from us, so I can't give you any advice.........except, I have heard from many people who stay in the all-inclusives in our area that the food is usually uninspiring and monotonous. One of the best things about Mexico is the wonderful street food, especially tacos, which are nothing like Taco Bell. Look for a sidewalk vendor where there are crowds of people, especially locals, and you won't have to worry about quality and safety. We have eaten Mexican street food for years and never have been sick from it.
