In this post, I’ll list the most commented options that I got from my friends Expats in Playa del Carmen that will work out weather you prefer app, web based services or just making a phone call.
SHO Playa del Carmen is a lcoal company specialized in delivering food and other products.
Pros: You can order food and mostly any other product from supermarkets, over the counter medicines to retailers. This is not an app, which is not necessarily bad in order to avoid registration, credit card info, etc. Reach out through Facebook, Whatsapp, email or phone.
Cons: It’s not 24hrs service, in any case their schedule is quite broad from Monday to Friday from 7am to 11pm.
2. Te Hago el Paro
Te Hago el Paro is another local company, however they do have an app based service. On their Facebook Page they describe themselves as a young company specialized in getting anything their customers need at very competitive cost. You can download the app here.
Pros: App based service & local company. They can delivery food & other products.
3. Playa Now
Playa Now is mostly a web based service where you can choose from more than 60 restaurants in town. What’s cool is that you can check out the menus, phones and open hours of the restaurants on their website. Keep in mind that regardless of the opening hours of the restaurants, the delivery service only works from 9:00 am – 12:00 am, which works anyway in most of the cases.
Pros: Fairly good amount of options for restaurants.
Cons: They deliver only food.
4. Playita Express

Rappi is a Colombian delivery service that operates mainly in Latin America (equivalent to Uber Eats, DiDi Food, Glovo, etc.). You can download the app here.
Pros: Reliable service as it is a multinational tech-based company and you can earn points on each delivery to get future discounts. If you plan on being a heavy user you might as well consider the Prime service with unlimited deliveries.
Cons: Comments point out expensive delivery costs that can also be variable depending on the demand, wether conditions, etc.
Walmart offers same day delivery on their website.
Pros: You can choose whether Delivery or Pick-up, from groceries to any other product available in the store. There is a special link for discount coupons. Plus, there are some exclusive online-only products to chose from. They also take orders via Whatsapp.
