Parque Fundadores commemorates the Founders of Playa del Carmen and is a significant historical location within the city. Originally a community gathering spot where residents obtained their water, food and basic living essentials, this seaside location was the market hub for the then small village. As the population grew and the city expanded, the park evolved into a center for entertainment and events, with local businesses and vendors setting up shop around this central point.

Taste of Playa 2013 will be held in this public area, Parque Fundadores, to celebrate all that is Playa del Carmen; its people, its government and those who choose it as a vacation destination. It is our honor to contribute to the traditions and history of Playa del Carmen with this event.
