Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

guys, I am most likely moving to Cape Town after Australia, and read through this because it is also an option and I want to continue learning Spanish...

I have not seen anything on the women...can you guys share your experiences, are there tons of tourists coming through? I've been to Playa about 5-6 times but mainly stayed in resorts, I've seen a little of it, same w/ Cancun, thanks for the replies ahead of time.

Really starting to consider this too. Do you have pics? Are there any poker houses there with free bedrooms? Whats up with deep sea fishing over there? Is it easy to get a game of beach volley or soccer going over there? Thanks..

definitely considering this as well. would love to share a condo with another, just seems kinda overwhelming doing all this on your own. much respect to you guys who have already made the leap.

There is plenty of deep sea fishing, haven't done it yet despite talking about it all the time. will 100% be going in December. I think there are a ton of different fish in the area, I know 0 about marine stuff though.

Beach volleyball goes everyday, there are a bunch of nets up and down the shore. I think places rent the ball, but probably could join games in progress. There are a ton of public parks lit up at night, I'm guessing they play soccer. Not a sport I dislike more though so couldn't tell anymore

I think we are all too lazy to be much of a help on moving, but you wouldnt be alone when you got here. I was a little uneasy about moving to a new country by myself, but it really wasnt a big deal at all. First couple days were a little crazy, but was totally comfortable after like a week even though I still only speak like 5 words of spanish

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

Hey Guys,

I am going to be moving to Playa in 10 days or so. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on real estate agencies to use and/or neighborhoods to live in? I have done quite a few google searches but was curious if anyone could post who they used finding an apartment and how the process went?

So far I have been searching on andale.mx and looked at a couple of other real estate places online. My Spanish is very poor though, so having someone who speaks some English would be a huge help.

Thanks a lot for your response.
I'm really set on going now. Only need to convince a few friends
If anyone is looking for people to share a house/flat with beginning of 2012 and even maybe december pm me.
About myself: I play hsmtts, don't smoke cigs, like to do a lot of sport and go out clubbing etc.

I'd think you'd have better luck in Cancun with your exchange. Of course, I know you'd have to get there first, but it's a thought.

So I've been to every bank and money changer in the city, including Monex, and nobody will take SGD or HKD.

If can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

I will pay a 5% vig for stars or MB or would accept $2450usd for the equivalent of $2868 SGD+HKD that you would have to change back in the states.

Also, once I get everything set up will buy you buckets of beer all night, every night for a week.

Please PM.

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

the local girls on average are pretty ugly. The hot ones are really hot imo (I love all non-white females though) Lot's of tourists, lots of good looking tourists. So far it seems like Playa is the place for couples to go to (haven't run into a large group of females). I imagine that will change a bunch now that tourism is picking up

The night life is pretty fun. Clubs are open all night, sometimes a cover sometimes not. Beers ~40pesos mixed drinks 80. Be careful, heard lots of stories about scams (pretty common to try and **** drunk tourists)

some of the clubs have all you can drink (bottom shelf) for 350 pesos, I haven't done that yet as I like going from place to place.

The clubs are all on 12th calle from the beach to 10th ave, and they pick up around 12pm. before 12 the drinking/eating takes place on 5th avenue
