private chef in playa del carmen

We are staying at a condo in Playa Del Carmen for a few nights and would be interested in hiring a private chef for a day or two. I have heard that prices are pretty reasonable and considering we have a huge kitchen, we figured we should take advantage of it, without having to actually cook -- it's a vacation after all! And cooking for 8 people would be best left to a professional :)

I am having trouble finding a reputable chef/cook -- any recommendations? I know some rental agencies offer to send chefs, but I rather stick to someone I know will do a good job.
