DESTINATION SPOTLIGHT: Playa del Carmen, Mexico
It was about a year ago that I discovered the beautiful beach town of Playa del Carmen Mexico. About 45 minutes south of Cancun, this town has historically been sold to Cancun tourists as a great place to spend a day and shop. With its perfect blend of metropolitan style, European charm and casual island vibe, I’ll assert that Playa should be THE destination, not just a tour stop on your week’s itinerary.
The last time I was in Playa, I was coordinating the wedding of John and Joanie. Needless to say, I was busy and pretty much had tunnel vision with one goal – get that bride down the aisle and give her the destination wedding dream. So when I was invited back by Condohotels to further explore all that this area has to offer destination couples and their guests, I jumped at the chance.
With a busy itinerary of sampling restaurants and touring local ceremony and reception venues, I’m very excited to share all that I learn. So stay tuned for daily recaps and travel tidbits as I explore this dream destination.
