Hopefully this will be a good spot to ask questions, get information, plan events, and have fun in this awesome spot in the world. Obviously anything in the Riviera Maya (PDC, Cancun, Tulum, etc.) is open for discussion.
Looks beautiful, but damn it is blazing hot in Playa July, Aug., & Sept.
I, too, would be interested in learning what rents (say for a nice 2/2) & monthly living costs are in Playa. Seeing as it's developed into such a popular tourist destination over the last 10+ years, I'm guessing it's no longer that cheap.
If you're not a diver, take a dive class & get you're scuba certification.
If you're not a diver & not interested in becoming one, go snorkeling in the cenotes.
By the way, cenote is the Mayan word for "sink hole". The sink holes around Playa are filled with cool, crystal clear fresh water & are connected to the largest underground cave system in the world. Diving & snorkeling in them is other-worldly!
take ferry over to Cozomel & do some open water (ocean) drift dives.
shopping, drinking, eating on 5th Ave.
Checking out ruins in Tulum.
Kite surfing in Tulum.
Depending upon time of year, take a bus an hour north to Cancun, catch a 15 minute ferry to Isla Mujeres & go snorkeling with Whale Sharks.
Is anyone actually living on cozumel? Just finalized a deal on a condo in the north hotel zone there moving down in January and just curious if there are any other poker players living on the island itself, would be nice to have some people to hang out with occasionally once we get there.
