The little BLUE ball is magic. Click anywhere and she will always return to her table.
Try dragging it away with your mouse but she'll always return. Like you to CancunSteve
Like Golondrinas in the heart of Playa del Carmen this little ball wants to be on the table.
When looking for a bed and breakfast hotel in Playa del Carmen (b&B) with economical two bedroom suites you know you've come to the right place.
The Hotel Golondrinas although near it all is just enough removed from all the bar noise which prvents a good night's sleep.
The hotel has two pools surrounded with palm trees.
The poor girl on the right in the photo is sad. This is her last day of vacation.
She does not want to go home.
She wants to continue enjoying the beachclub the two pools at the hotel Golondrinas.
And walking down the Avenue.
On the flatscreen TV in her room she was able to see her favorite novelas (soap operas).
She says:Ademas, Las Golondrinas cuenta con una inmejorable ubicacion, en pleno centro de Playa del Carmen y a solo unos pasos de la playa, la famosa 5ta Avenida, de los principales supermercados
A few blocks walk and you'll find a Liverpool (an upscale department store selling fine clothing, duty free perfumes, sporting goods, shoes, and baby clothes.
Playa del Carmen is pedestrian friendly and you can walk to anything. The main north-south pedestrianized street, Fifth Ave, does not allow cars except in the early morning hours for deliveries. On Fifth Avenue are many restaurants, and small shops and some larger ones like Liverpool. The north-south thoroughfare Avenida 30, five blocks west of 5th Ave, is where the large stores are located near the Hotel Golondrinas. To walk from the town square, El Zócalo, and Avenida Juarez to Avenida Constituyentes takes only a few minutes.
Beware of the excursions that offer take you to Chichen Itza, Tulum, Coba or theme Parks like Xcaret or Xel-Ha. Better to catch a public bus (at the bus terminal) that is even more confortable and takes you to all those same places, faster, and for a fraction of the price. You also avoid the constant attempts to sell you things, and the short stops right in front of a souvenir shop that sells everything overpriced who most likely give the driver commissions for anything you purchase there.
Here's my lovely wife Esperanza near the Golondrinas' beach enjoying Playa del Carmen.
Just minutes away from the hotel is the famous Mamita's Beach club, the best in Playa del Carmen. There you will find:
Food service on the beach and pool area
Beach lounges and palapas
Bathrooms, lockers and dressers
Two eye, nose, throat, ear witnesses went down to the Golondrinas' beach club. Both witnesses Win and Place, claimed they say a cruise ship out on the horizon. But alas it was none other than that Cozumel Ferry sailing from the Playa del Carmen pier to the island of Cozumel visible out over the waters.
Walking along the beach or on Fifth Avenue which parallels the shore from the beach club of this economical family B&B (bed and breakfast) out to the pier find great shops offering beach ware. Silver. Arts and crafts. Pottery. Lamps. Baskets. There are tinkers, tailors, and candelstick makers.
Most of these fascinating small shops are family run affairs. The little kids (children of the owners) smile up at you as they prance about barefoot near the merchandise.
And of course hair braiding and henna tatto stalls.
And a foot spa with fish in the water. Not for this fella. Thanks. Poor fish!
Plenty of good eateries. And bars too.
Yes sir, that Golondrinas is so well located.

Near the beach. Near Fifth Avenue. Good people this is where it's happening.
how is this Playa del Carmen hotel you ask? the answer is provided at the left. the low rates provided by us CancunSteve.
we stayed here ourselves so we can recommend it from personal experience.
come on down. it's great!
We are looking forward to our fifth visit in six years. We go every year and have brought family and friends along with us. The nearby beach is wonderful. The grounds are very clean and well kept. Service is good and the staff is always friendly. The main reason we keep coming back is that the resort is small, reasonably priced
Dining near the hotel:
A major part of the charm of Playa del Carmen, is the international influence that comes with people traveling from all over the world to either live here or just hang out a few weeks. There is a large Italian community that lives here year round who opened some great pizza parlors like Rolandis. Swedes have also taken a liking to the beautiful landscape owning businesses such as local favorites; Babe's Noodle House and La Rana Cansada. The Dutch discovered it years ago escaping the cold winters and elm dissease of Holland to enjoy the warm tropical weather of Playa del Carmen. Argentineans consider the Rivera Maya a perfect destination, and because of this we get to enjoy amazing Argentinean grills with amazing food that everyone raves about which does not include the Burger King on Fifth Avenue. Of course our neighbors to the north, in the United States and Canada, have been long time fans of Playa del Carmen in general, but specifically choose to invest millions of dollars in Walmarts and other chains not far from Fifth Avenue. Germans , Spanish, Nationals from all over Mexico, South Africans, Israeli's, and Uruguayans, opened such eateries as: Byblos French owner, and chef, Sylvie Goetz serves upscale French food that is accompanied by a nice wine list. Cozy and romantic this is a great spot when dining out with your girl. In Blue Lobster grilled lobster that you pay by the weight*, steaks, and prawns. Dine on the terrace over looking Fiesta Alley or choose a table indoors. *Don't order my Aunt Mildred as she wore a wrist watch on her thumb. So by weight you'd have to mortgage the house to order her.
With the international influx comes international cuisine, and there are plenty of choices when it comes to dining out in Playa del Carmen. Fifth Avenue has sushi bars, Chinese food, Mexican Grills, Argentinean Grills, Thai food, Swedish Mat (food) , Mediterranean Cuisine, Italian Pasta Houses, Upscale Lebanese hot spots, Crepe houses, Cuban fare, the famous United States based fast food chains, coffee houses, cafes, wraps, sandwiches, and hole in the wall pizza joints; all of which are here for your dining pleasure, adventure, and experience. In addition to the international influences there are places where you can taste and enjoy local fare such as traditional Mayan cuisine, fresh Seafood, and local taco kitchens.

When Sheila talks to her sister about her nephews, everything they do and say is exciting to her. She agrees that they’re entertaining, but the joy her sister feels by just playing with them in the yard is the same joy Sheila feels every time she gets off a plane in Cancun and gets on down to her Playa del Carmen lodgings booked with you know who.
Sheila would rather be on the beaches of the Golondrinas beach club every summer while her creepy sister prefers to spend her days at home with the brats, climbing trees. When Sheila ain't on her way to Golondrinas she's off to Bloomingdales to get accesories.
As Golondrinas has good high speed WiFi you'll want to bring your smartphone with you and use the net.

The images come flying out of their frames right at you. Be daring. Face a lion. A lying Hilary Clinton. See the floor give-way, while the arm of Zeus comes out of the floor to grab your feet.
It's worth a trip down to the Hotel Golondrinas just to catch the exhibit herein.

Afterwards you'll be stuffing the goodies into your suitcases back at the Hotel Golondrinas Playa del Carmen.
Around the corner from Hotel Golondrinas in Playa del Carmen is the amazing museum of Wonders. Paintings are done in such a way with intense colors, that apparently normal 2D flat works on the wall and floor mysteriously transform to 3D once you take their photo with your mobile device.
Here we're looking at a painting on the floor. When photographed it appears the floor is opening with a mysterious level below and an arm reaching out.
A few minute walk from Golondrinas Playa del Carmen.

And one must mention the breakfast included in your soujourn within Hotel Golondrinas. An American breakfast and buffet.
Experience the magic. Once inside the museum your personal guide indicates the best spot to sit or stand when snapping a photo with your cel.
Speaking of cels, be sure to download our free app from Google Play Store About CancunSteve
Here a portrait of a wave and surfboard comes to life as I stand in front of the painting. Later on after the museum did the pool back at Hotel Golondrinas then roamed around Fifth Avenue.
On the floor was a painting of a dresser, chair, and dolphin which also came to life.
The way in which these paintings are done and special pigments used create this optical illusion when photographed. In the museum theater a video explains further.
Least I do not forget to mention, the WiFi in Hotel Golondrinas is excellent. Strong signal.
For those who've been to this town before, you know how scarce parking can be.
Not a problem at Hotel Golondrinas. I put our vehicle in front of the hotel in the free parking and did not give parking another thought.
In the museum your guide will stay with you the full two hours or so you tour all the paintings.
At your own descretion you may give your guide a tip only if you wish to do so.
See a statue pouring water in the painting and if you extend your hand in front of the painting and snap a photo it seems the water is falling into your own hand.
A flat 2D work of art on the floor is again transformed once photgraphed.
An ordinary beach vacation may be transformed with a stay in these Playa del Carmen lodgings just around the corner from the Museum of Wonders in Hotel Golondrinas.
And the street scene at night on Fifth Avenue is awesome.
Also around the corner from Hotel Golondrinas is a natural food restaurant with superb vegetarian fare. I did the vegetarian lasagna. Inside the restaurant is oodles of natural products on display.
Some folk just elect to hang out in the attractive Golondrinas lobby, lounging about and reading one of the many books there one may borrow.
The painting on the wall of this museum around the block from Golondrinas your lodgings in Playa del Carmen shows someone blowing bubbles.
The illusion is those bubles leave the canvas and float above the ground.
So if one sits on the floor as my wife is doing here it appears they are within the bubble.
Like the Golondrinas pool.
And the heart of Fifth Avenue is just a block from the museum of Wonders.
Patti's mother said:
These lodgings were in a handy location - walk to everywhere. The pool was lovely and the rooms were most comfortable. The desk staff were very helpful when we needed help with laundry and how to find certain bars and restaurants in the town.
