Hey Scott!  I used to live in Playa del Carmen and I'd definitely recommend a visit to  Luna Maya  Order the Cochinita Pibil which is a famed local dish - this restaurant serves it up in a mason jar over a charcoal briquette - quite the presentation but a bit on the pricey side though.  A bit less expensive and newer on the 5ta is  Almirante Pech - inventive and inspired local flavors.  For more economical local fare, I'd recommend Don Sirloin for street-style tacos and Los Aguachiles for some of the best fresh seafood tacos (2 locations - Playa & Tulum).

In Playa del Carmen you must, MUST visit "La cochinita del Tío" just infront of Carretera Federal's Burger King. Is the best cochinita pibil in playa.

Also: Traditional seafood at El Cantil De Los Tiburones and traditional Mexican Snacks at La Exquisita de la 38

Hopefuly this will help ;)
