Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

If you can get pesos/dollars for my SGD/HKD then yeah, would love to hear how.

Also thanks for the agent advice, just got moved in to my new place Beers on me sometime soon.


If anybody is coming down alone and wants to rent out my extra bedroom while they find their own place let me know, I speak decent Spanish and wouldn't mind helping out with stuff.

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

Ok so once the FullTilt money is paid to US players I will be moving down to Playa del Carmen asap. Once I get a time frame on when we will be getting paid I will have a better idea on when i will be moving down there. When I move I will be looking for 2 other 2p2 grinders to rent a pad with. When looking for a pad im looking for more of an upscale home/condo in the price range of 1800-2500USD. If anyone knows of any good realtor agencys/agents they coudl refere me to would be much appreciated. My original plan was to move to Rosarito but after visiting I didn't feel I would enjoy that area. I want a high quality of life and it seems as though Playa offers great living standards. If anyone is interested in moving to PLaya in the next few months IM me or respond back and we could chat and figure out some options. CWK.

Make sure you also visit the newest karaoke restaurant bar in playa del carmen, called Hangover Bar. Daily drink specials, great food and it's cheap! It's a block away from the beach and the owner there takes care of his own business. Meaning, you get treated like a king.

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

Hey guys. Currently I live in Rosarito Mexico but I want to move out to the PDC area come January. I will be traveling back to the states A LOT, so I will only be there 15-20 days out of the month. Does anyone have an extra room? Or looking to get a place?

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

Since the Banking in Mexico thread seems to have died I've been inquiring of this in the various Mexico threads - anyone in PDC able to withdraw to MB in USD then >>> Mexican bank account in USD? I.e. to cut way down on the vig%.

Realize this is a no-go in Border States but possible (maybe) otherwise.

hej guys,

many casinos are around playa (aprox. 60 miles) to go and play live poker ? How is the live-scene i.g. ?

I went to a casino when I first got here. They had one of those electronic poker tables and they said they ran a 500peso 9 player tournament once a week. A player I talked to who had lived here for 2 years said they supposedly ran big games in Cancun for awhile, but he never went.

Pretty much non existent is my point

sounds pretty bad, that there is no option to play live-games.

noseeds, we are going to hold you to this. You need to be posting some awesome photos in this thread of being out on a boat and catching some huge badass fish. We'll also need video of the fish jumping in the air.

AT+T has a Viva Mexico plan which is good if you want to keep your US phone number and make calls from both countries (it's 1350 minutes for $95 or something).

I think Telcell works with iPhone 3GS too.

Telcel has micro sims for the iphone4. Data is reasonable and the network is pretty good.

Re: Official Playa Del Carmen Thread

I have searched for this answer elsewhere with no luck...

let's say FTP begins process of paying out tomorrow. Is it going to be possible to be lumped in with ROW players and get paid from Tapie? Or are we stuck going through DOJ (I'm assuming that will be a big pain in the ass)

If giving the option, which way would be better?

Is it way too early to tell? (and get excited!!!!!!)
