An Introduction to ... Like A Local

“In your hometown, we’re sure you have your favorite places to eat, drink, celebrate, or relax. You probably know the best place to shop, the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset, and the most intimate of cafes to enjoy coffee with a friend. Now, imagine you could learn this kind of information about the places you travel before you even get there. With Michelin and Peter Greenberg’s “Like a Local” series, you’ll know where to go and what to do to ensure the best travel experience, exactly as if you were a local yourself.”

More than a century ago, the founders of our company published the first Michelin Guide as a way to promote driving and give motorists practical information about where to service and repair their cars, find quality accommodations and a good meal. It was a way to get more people driving and help them feel more confident doing it. This part of the business has grown into an entire travel and lifestyle category that now includes travel guides, maps, and of course the MICHELIN hotel & restaurant Guide which has become the global benchmark in gourmet dining.

  • Q: Where can I go in Mexico to see some of the history?
  • A: If you really want to see some of what Playa del Carmen has to offer, venture outside the manicured port city and explore some of the many important historical and ecological landmarks, including Mayan ruins, hidden caves, and natural springs. In particular, you will see many of these ancient artifacts at Tulum, the remains of a walled Mayan city more than 800 years old. Tulum is about 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen. How to do this: Best way to do it is to rent a car along 5th Avenue for about $30 per day at the local rental car shops or take a taxi, which will cost about $40.
