Playa Del Carmen Side Trips – Yes You Should!

When we arrived in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, we found plenty of things that we expected, and even more that we didn’t — in the best possible way. What we expected:  White sandy beach, check. Warm blue water, it’s here. Also, cheap tacos, lots of people watching, and a huge array of shops and restaurants […]
