Most meals are taken at the signature Sal Y Fuego Restaurant, offering rustic cuisine served up in a casually refined setting that instantly warms its way into the hearts (and bellies) of diners from around the world. Esencia serves the finest seafood, meats and fresh salads, plus exotic ingredients found nowhere else in the world. The chef is happy to cater dishes to the unique tastes of each guest and can prepare meals to meet any special need or desire.

Sal Y Fuego is the perfect prelude for an evening on the beach, or a 20 minute drive to Playa del Carmen's nightlife.
