This is the beautiful sunrise we experienced while staying in Caracol, just north of Playa del Carmen. The clouds were spectacular every morning and this morning was particularly gorgeous! I didn't come close to capturing the true beauty that morning!

When I finally decided to get serious with photography and purchased a decent camera, this was the 1st photo I ever took. Beautiful sunrise on Coco Beach. Fishing boats resting beachside.

#Mexico #Cancun #PlayacarPalace #Vacation #Paradise #Spa #Resort #Hotel #Beach Grand Riviera Princess Hotel..Beautiful😍👏 Beautiful area in the Alux. You can walk all around in the different rooms in the cave. Cenote Burrodromo:
impressive cave with stalactites and bats cover. White sand beach at Playa del Carmen.
#blue The colorful fabrics of Mexico. I am in love! Fishing Place Playa del Carmen used to be a sleepy fishing village but now it is lively, active, and fun...with so much to see and do, both in the town and nearby. The beaches are lovely, the water warm, and after a relaxing day at the beach, we like to stroll through 5th Avenue (also known as Quinta Avenida), shopping, people-watching, and sampling different restaurants, coffees, and desserts.
Be careful, though...because this is a more touristy section of Playa, and you may find yourself spending more than you should. Be adventurous, as well...and go beyond this pedestrian-only 40 block area, to explore more local treasures.
This photo was taken in one of the small shops right on 5th Avenue.

#Patterns This is a great all-inclusive resort that provides first-class services while preserving the natural environment of the Riviera Maya. Tourist People #cancun #WaterLust Great place for sunrise or sunset with or without bad weather, mind the guards at the docks, they can be a bit annoying. Just outside of downtown Playa del Carmen is a restaurant in a cave. The food was just okay, but the atmosphere was unbeatable. Playa Del Carmen ferry terminal to get to Cozumel is a marvelous site with a nice beach and even senor frogs to have some sips and snacks. #BeachBound #playadelcarmen I love this place 🙌🏻❤️ Interesting tree. Vibrant, yet barren. Shady spot on a beautiful sunny beach. Deck mayakoba Boat Display La Choza del Winik is a great, inexpensive place to pick up food on the corner of Av 10 and 46 (CTM). This carne asada chimichanga was excellent, and I can highly recommend the fish tacos too. The owners speak English, but they're happy to help if you want to practice your Spanish. We normally don't post photos of food. But jesus these tacos are THE BEST. You can find them in Taqueira Billy the Kid in Playa del Carmen. And oh, they are ridiculously cheap! Yummy. #playadelcarmen #mexico #PDC #Tacos #taqueria #travel #food #foodporn #traveltheworld #yummy #igtravel #explore #trysomethingnew #loveit #delicious If you happen to stop at La Vagabunda on Quinta, try the creamy tortilla soup! It comes with avocado, colourfully dyed taco strips and dried poblano chilli - cheap and delicious! Vacation last spring. Amateur photography. Beautiful room in the Alux Restaurant. This is adorable... but what does it mean?? hehe I'm sure they don't think I'm a piggy. I mean yes, some days I eat both lunch and dinner there but that's not weird, right? Chou Chou is one of my favorite cafes in Playa del Carmen. Definitely check it out while you're here- great vibe and yummy beverages (the non-alcoholic kind) and food. #whalesharks #WaterLust Plaza Sidewalk Hotel & Suites Just as peaceful it can be, just as powerful can it be! The ocean is beautiful! #ocean #travel #playadelcarmen #playa #mexico #nature #igtravel #twohobos #adventure #explore Amazing sunset from my balcony. Playa del Carmen, Mexico Sunset.. Cute little budget hotel in Playa del Carmen that still looks Mexican.. In the midst of a town that gets more modern and American looking every day. The beautiful colors on the street in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico 3rd floor of the Los Rancheros restaurant. Sunrise... This little shop on calle 14 between 5th and 10th Ave's is owned by Ali, a local Mexican lady who fills her shop with handicrafts made primarily by members of her family. She says her father likes hearts, so most things heart-shaped are made by him. Ali also purchases items handcrafted my the Mayan community to re-sell in her store... it's how she supports the Mayan community. If you happen upon her shop Ali will cheerfully show you around her store and if you're lucky, may even offer you a shot of tequila! Beautiful and colorful Playa del Carmen! We like it a lot! #mexico #playadelcarmen #travel #colorful #PDC #travel #Mexico #welovemexico #traveltheworld #adventure #explore #igtravel #twohobos Beef taco minus the salsa served with an ice cold beer
#localgem Sunrise on the beach. look at that water #EndlessSummer #playacar great party, great sunset, amazing beaches! Wedding spot? What a beautiful setting for a wedding! Beachfront cocktail hour. With a view like this from the bar and the warm salty breeze at your back, there's no need to go anywhere else!
If you ever find yourself sitting at the pool bar at the Playacar Palace in Playa Del Carmen, do yourself a favor and order a Banana Monkey. You won't drink anything else the entire time you are there, amazing!
The Playacar Palace is an amazing all-inclusive resort. As always, when you stay at any Palace Resorts location you have full all-inclusive access to all Palace Resort Properties, which means you have three other resorts to go play at when in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area! If you are planning a trip to the area it's worth checking out.
#Mexico #Cancun #PalaceResorts #PlayacarPalace #Vacation #Paradise #Spa #Resort #Hotel #Beach #RivierMaya Colorful Pillows for sale.... We were introduced to El Fogon by our very first taxi driver when we arrived into Playa. We asked for an inexpensive but excellent place to eat and he right away suggested El Fogon, located just across the street from La Mega. We're indebted to him! The food was delicious.
A few weeks later, we were exploring other areas of Playa, less touristy, and we stumbled upon our second El Fogon. It was a less crowded, the service was even friendlier, and the food just as excellent. A major advantage? The prices were better! You can find this second location on 30th, west of La Mega. Delicious!! For more about this, see: http://wp.me/p4HwkW-7L. The Royal adults only all inclusive resort in Play Del Carmen, Mexico. Delicious breakfast At Elemento !
Healthy, local, great decoration and atmosphere! And pet friendly ! #delicious #beach #cancun #WaterLust Best seafood place in Playa del Carmen! This is where the locals eat! #hogfish #mexico #locals #authentic #fish #delicious #playadelcarmen Bliss My spot for the day. The adults only section is on the left side of the resort when facing the ocean. A nice quiet retreat. Sunrise’s never fail to impress, it’s always worth the effort to get up early, choose your composition and not have to worry about rushing round with the camera settings. Gives you time to take in the beautiful surroundings while still capturing a stunning image

Colorful sombreros on the street in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico #beach #WaterLust #beach #WaterLust Hotel Riviera Princess A lovely hotel. While immense in size it's never a bore meandering the pathways lined with sculptures and wildlife You can rent bikes and ride them around the archeological site of Coba. This is the bicycle parking lot. Fabulous food at the Mayan Riviera. The place for evening drinks, incredible tunes, and a good crowd. Playa del Carmen at night... The town just keeps getting bigger. The staff was friendly and very nice (one drew my portrait just because haha). The rooftop patio has a small pool, but also a cheap bar. The rooptop was the central hangout so meeting others was easy. Breakfast was decent. The rooms were small and congested, but had lockers. Right down the street from the beach and central to all the shopping.
I would def. go back. I recommend getting a table at cocobongo! It's worth the money because you will not feel crammed! #cocobongo #bestclubinplaya

It's always beach time in Playa! These birds were so chatty Belly up and have some tequila in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Playa del Carmen is supposed to be the cool new place to Cancun. However, the beaches are better and the town is more accessible in Cancun. Our resort had a free shuttle to the sister resort in Playa del Carmen so it was fun to do a day trip there! #whaleshark #EndlessSummer a must! Swimming with this big boy!
