Yesterday I finally arrived in Playa del Carmen after 12 hours of traveling. It was a long day, but we found our hotel and walked around the city with no problems. We are staying at Xperience Hotel right off 5th Avenue because we wanted to get a great feel of the city, but not be too far from the beach. Plus, we got a great deal on Xpedia.
5th Avenue here is awesome. There are dozens of restaurants and shops, along with at least 4 Starbucks. I'm in LOVE!
I'm usually really good about wearing sunscreen, and I did have SPF 65 on, but the sun is serious down here. I think I'll be wearing a nice loose dress tomorrow! We also looked at 4 different houses for rent today. We found one that was really nice. It was 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with an upper deck pool and grill. The "ocean view" left a lot to be desired, but 4 blocks from the beach isn't too bad. Basically, if this is what I get to do everyday, I can learn to live without a lot!
What is something that is necessary when looking for a place to live?
