Rosewood Mayakoba, a resort located in Mexico's Riviera Maya, is introducing a new gastronomic experience: Aqui Me Quedo. Translating to "Here I Stay," Aqui Me Quedo offers guests a casual ambiance and a Caribbean-coastal menu including items like chilled coconut cocktails and "citrus-laced ceviche." 

Joining the resort's collection of restaurants, including Casa del Lago, Le Ceiba Garden and Kitchen, Punta Bonita and Agave Azul, Aqui Me Quedo boasts a new approach to Riviera Maya fare. Curated by Executive Chef Juan Pablo Loza, the menu offers antojitos, or "snacks," and a selection of memelas, which are hand-made oval tortillas. To compliment the menu, refreshments include local beer, mojitos, rose wine, mezcal and tequila. 

Each culinary property at Rosewood Mayakoba is inspired by a different expression of the Mexican gastronomic journey. Aqui Me Quedo draws on the relaxed vibe of beach-side cantinas found along Mexico's Caribbean coast. The food is cooked in a vintage truck and served in lounge-style seating underneath a canopy of palm trees.
