Where I stayed
Hotel Playa del Karma/Hotel Barrio Latino
Our first night was at the Hotel Playa del Karma, which was run by handsome and stylish Italians (are there any other kind?) and was just what we were looking for: a lush courtyard garden, beautiful tile details, bright colors, and a peaceful atmosphere. We dropped off my bag and set out on the town.
Only a block away was the main pedestrian street of Playa del Carmen, which was lined with restaurants and shops as far as you could see. Even though it was a little overwhelming, it wasn't bad, and actually really fun. Of course my excitement increased about 100 times when I spotted the Casa Tequila, as my "Happy Place" inevitably includes at least two shots of this happy making elixir. We spent the evening wandering up and down the street, having our first of many tacos, and enjoying the beer, the people watching, and the fact we had finally made it to Mexico.
