Riviera Maya...Playa del Carmen

During our recent trip to the Riviera Maya, one of our days away from the resort, was to Playa del Carmen.
Playa del Carmen, is a city of a little over 100,000 people.  Their main industry, is tourism.

It's a good place to do some shopping.

We stopped to watch these young ladies do some bead work.  This shop had beautiful textiles.

At the back of a fairly large shop, is a Tequila Museum....

....where you can hang out with these ladies.

Could this be one of their relatives?

We took a walk over to the beach.

I think for fishing, I'd want a bigger boat.

A nice lunch, and back to the resort.


  1. Love the pictures! They turned out great... It's beautiful there.. Everyone looks good!

  2. Wow - I am sooooo jealous. Have a pescado al mojo de ajo for me! Been to Playa 3 x and love it. Enjoy!

  3. OMG, 100,000 people? I remember when it was a village.

  4. Wow, what great photos! My favorite is the one of the boat and pelican. It looks like such a wonderful trip how exciting and yet incredibly relaxing. hehe. Gotta be hard to pull yourself back from that. :-)
