Hi I'm traveling to the royal playa del Carmen in early May 2014, been reading trip advisor and I'm getting really concerned regarding the construction that going on at the mo!!! Paid almost 4 grand for two weeks..... Does anybody know when this will be completed or what's the best room to be furthest away from it all????
We will have a rental car and are wondering if its better to drive North back up by the airport and take the toll road to Chichen Itza or is it better to go South to Tulum and then take the 109 highway to Valladolid. Google maps shows both to be very similar in time with the route through Tulum being a bit shorter in distance.
Does anyone have any experience using prepaid travel cards (Travelex,Fairfx etc) at atms in Mexico? Are they reliable,and what do the banks there charge per transaction? I occasionally used my debit card last time and got absolutely clobbered,what`s the best solution for a visit lasting 4 months? Thanks
are there any long termers that can recommend places to stay that have good monthly deals? By that I mean about 100 pounds a week for a single person,clean with hot water,cable tv and wifi and not situated directly above a nightclub,cheers.
Anyone have any feedback on The Elements condo in Playa? How is the beach in front of it? Also, how far is the walk to 5th ave. Any good restaurants right next to the condo? Trying to decide if we should stay here or at the all inclusive The Royal.
My wife and I are coming to Playa Del Carmen in February and have rented a condo in the Meridian. Does anyone have any information on the Meridian? I would interested to know if it is noisy in that area or if it is far enough from the night life to be a quiet area. Also any comments on the coco beach area. Thanks
can you go topless at the playa del carmen beaches
My hubbie & I will be arriving the 1st week of October, stating @ the Royal Playa Del Carmen. Whilst I know we will have a wonderful time no matter what the weather, I was secretly hoping to be able to spend some time just laying in the sun and maybe getting myself a tan to take back home with me. Looking at weather forecasts however, this is not looking likely. What is the weather there at the moment? Any hint of sun?
I am staying in Playacar next month and want to take the bus to Chichen itza. Do you know if I can take the bus early around 5 am? and how much the ticket is roundtrip? thank you!
My family of 3 wants to volunteer for a day at an orphanage in Cozumel, but we're trying to find discounts to the island since it's $80 just for the ferry and we're not all divers. Does anyone have suggestions or know how we can get a discounted fare?
Please recomend an adults only resort with excellent beach, close to everything, 5th, ave, local restaurants, etc.
My wife and I are considering a Christmas break in Playa del Carmen, but have never been to Mexico before.
We are not great lovers of package deals and prefer to organise everything ourselves, so I'm hoping for some help in finding comfortable, upmarket accommodation on the beachfront. A condominium resort would be ideal, with a pool/pools.
We will also need to get from Cancun Airport to the resort in the easiest way possible so any ideas for transfers would be much appreciated.

Where can I buy Chula sandals in Playa del Carmen?
my wife has the best taste in everything!!!!!! and has found the Rosewood Mayakoba......My wallet isn't laughing..... are there any equivalent hotels for less or is this really going to hurt:(
We will be going next November as her brother is getting married, we are a child less couple so do not want to stay at a hotel that is over run with children hence we are not staying at the same hotel as her brother.
I have noticed that the majority of rooms in our price range at the Rosewood over look the lagoon, so is there a
chance of mosquito problem as we do not want the holiday spoilt by bites as they really go for me
if i leave my car at a parking lot near the cozumel ferry, is there a charge and if so, how much?
It is our silver wedding anniversary when we are in Playa del carmen, any tips/ideas on good places for a romantic night?
Should i take Paso's or Dollars or mixture of both?
My long term boyfriend & I are going out of the country for the first time to Playa Del Carmen(not too far from the downtown area) in a few weeks. His Birthday is right before we leave for our trip & I would really love to do something special there to surprise him.. Does anyone have any ideas? Such as certain excursions, clubs, spas, or even something out of the ordinary? Typically I would research things months in advance, but I don't have much time left & this month is going to fly by with everything else I have got going on. Also, we can travel to the nearby areas(such as Tulum, Akumal, Cancun, etc.) if needed. And please note that while I'm into adventure.. I'm not into extreme adventure such as sky diving or swimming with sharks ;)
I really really appreciate any ideas, tips, or anything else anyone would like to throw out there. Thank you :)!!!
We're staying at the Riu Palace Mexico in Playa del Carmen for reference.
We are planning to bring our mini-dashound to Playa next week and would love to hear from some members living there to get a sense of where we can and can't take the dog. We are staying at a private dog-friendly condo in town. Thanks in advance for the reply.
Does anyone know if its possible to get any deals or coupons for things to do while on our honeymoon in playa del carmen/
I am trying to get the email address for the El Tukan, tried calling but language barrier caused too much mid-understanding. Does anyone have it please?

Also, if You have recommadations to nice restaurants for lunch or dinner, beach restaurants and so on, we would like to hear. Not staying 14 days in AI ;)

Is there a forum for this resort. Having a hard time getting info. Thanks
Does anyone know of any Playa del Carmen hotels to be found that have soft, cushy American-style beds as compared with the uber-firm boardlike torture devices apparently favored by Mexicans (and Thais)? Judging from online midrange hotel pictures and a week's stay last year with relatives in their absolutely lovely Playa del Carmen home, this super-hard mattress type is the norm. (We did find that at a fantastic resort hotel on Cozumel, there are luxuriously comfy Hyatt hotel, etc.-style beds, but we don't want to spend money on a high-end resort this time.)
We are soft and pampered sleepers and don't think we can take the severe mattress thing for a week this year, yet the siren song of Playa del Carmen is calling us back (to see all the stuff we didn't see last time, & do all the relaxing we didn't do last time...we hope!!).
Please let me know if you can help us out with any info on this essential hotel detail, & thanks! May good travel karma be with you :)
hi, has anyone heard of the Valentin? we are planning about 5 nights in august for myhusband and I for our babymoon. I will be about 6 months pregnant at thetime. Does any one think this will be an issue? Will going to Xel ha and Tulum be ok while 6 months pregnant? Thanks!!!
What's the best way to get to Playa Del Carmen from Cancun airport? We're travelling with an 8 mo old baby.
Also do you recommend anything that we should do and see?
What's the best place to snorkel?
Chichen Itza is also on our list.
We're staying in an all inclusive resort in PDC for 8 nights.
Hello to all,
We have just booked today to travel to Playa del Carmen on the 28th of April for two weeks. We have stayed in Cancun twice before so we are aware of the general requirements in Mex.
We are staying at the Riu Tequila so my questions are specific to that resort. Is there wireless internet connection at this resort? or is there plug in service with a laptop?
How many al la cartes are in this resort? Info states one has access to other resorts...........Do you know which ones? Can one see the Princess resorts?
Price for taxi to Playa del Cammen? Would want to go to Cosumel so any info will be helpful.
Thanks to all.
Hey everyone I am going to playa on May 5 and wanted to know what the crowds are like in May. I have been to playa in Aug. and March.
