swimming in Playa del CarmenThis is what's all about

The beaches are even more awesome than the pools.

The main beach in Playa del Carmen doesn't even have a name.

In New York there is Jones Beach. Coney Island beach. Even a Plum beach in Brooklyn or Orchard Beach in the Bronx

What shall we name this Playa del Carmen beach?

Strolling down the street:
On the stroll you will pass many stores filled with Mexican crafts, but one must is Pachamama. Translated to Mother Earth or a patch on mama, the shop sells high quality traditional Mexican handicraft from all over Mexico. It even highlights a few modern adaptations.
The owner, a resident of Playa for twenty years, works directly with artists at the source; pays them pesos and sells the pieces at a nice profit. He finds the one-of-a-kind pieces to sell to the public.

Then there's the Tequila house:
A trip to Mexico is not complete without a sampling of tequila. One place to get it is Casa Tequila. The building's imposing structure is easy to see on 5th avenue and its tequila selection is worth a try.
The official tequileria provides a place to sample Mexico's finest before you buy it. Ask questions and learn the difference between silver, repasado, and aņejo while tasting some of the blue agave spirit. Sometimes someone there knows the answer; if not they wing it. Enjoy.
