Playa del Carmen is a city in Mexico located on the Caribbean Sea. It is a very popular tourist destination and is surrounded by resort hotels.

Unlike its neighbor Cancun, Playa del Carmen has a nice town center with 5th avenue at its heart. Here the pedestrianized street is lined with restaurants, shops and bars and really comes alive at night.

We had a long bus ride from Belize to Playa del Carmen. On the way we passed an amazing blue lagoon and stopped for some roadside grilled chicken.

It was really nice to have a few days relaxing on the beach. We also went clubbing at Mexico’s premier all inclusive club experience Coco Bongo…. a lot of fun.
