about the weather

by jimandalo

hi! im not meaning to sound stupid, but im going to playa on oct 27 and will be there till the 6th of nov, is it most likley to rain on us the whole time we are there? We live in washington state so are used to the rain, but ive heard that when it rains there, its still nice and warm enough to be outside, and that it usualy passes fairly quickly, meaning that if it rains in the morning, theres a good chance we could still spend the afternoon on the beach. Is this just wishful thinking, or the truth? I appreciate any and all replies, and any advice about anything we shouldnt miss while there.

Re: about the weather

by diver-x

When we were in Playa it rained almost every day, late in the afternoon some time between 3:00 & 5:00. The storms passed pretty quickly and sun was back out in about an hour. But the rain is drenching! When we took a day trip to Cozumel, the streets became rivers! But it was fine - I wouldn't worry about it - and yes it is still warm but you will get soaked if you're out in the rain.

What not to miss? If you don't dive, consider taking a scuba intro class so you can see what's underwater there. The diving is great! And take a snorkel tour in a cenote, which is a water-filled cavern. The water is cool and refreshing and the caverns are spectacular! I'd say Chichen Itza is well worth the 3-4 hour drive to get there - but leave super-early and take the toll road (I think the tolls totalled about $15 each way) - it's so much faster! Tulum is nice for the ruins but bring bathing suits for the beach! We really enjoyed Xcaret Eco-park quite a bit. There's a lot to do & see there and you'll definitely want bathing suits. And if you can at all, stay late at Xcaret for the night show. That's the highlight! It's really wonderful! Get to the stadium early because it fills up fast!

Oh yeah, the beach is nice too! Have fun!!!!

Re: about the weather

by Cveilleux

This is my 4th trip out there and I'm going 2 days earlier than you. I am concerned about the weather only that it might interfere with outdoor activities. There is a tropical low that is hanging around causing all the rain that isn't moving very fast. I don't usually go this time of year because hurricane season lasts until about mid November, so all we can do is pray or take lots of books and cards to play with. It is usually pretty warm in the fall, so it'll just be very wet but not cold.

Travel Tips for Playa del Carmen

Fresh Squeezed Juice

by peggydaly

He'll squeeze it right in front of you. From morning until around noon he's on 10th Ave around Juarez. BIG cup for $1 US. What a way to start the day. Then head down Juarez to 5th Ave for a cochinita pibil taco for about $.60 US.

Sian Ka'an

by whitneyone

Here is our guide for our trip around the Sian Kaan Biosphere. What do you think, 18? His english was very limited, so is our spanish, but we still got some info. this is our boat pulling away from the temple in the lagoon.

Ula Gula: raw deal

by 1davide about Ula Gula

It is a shame that our wonderful vacation in Playa del Carmen (great people, good food and fantastic location) was marred by a single bad experience at Ula Gula. But, if this post keeps just one or two of you from having the same experience, it will be worth it. Ula Gula is an upstairs restaurant on 5th avenue, next to south 10th. It offers ridiculously small portions at inflated prices. I should have known something was wrong when the wine glass they brought us had hardly any wine into it. By the time we were done, having spent close to $ 50, we were still hungry, and had to go to another restaurant just to take care of our hunger.

Worlds Best Lobster?

by whitneyone about Las Brisas

From our 2003 Visit.
We had read about this place in guide and decided to try this "very affordable" place. What a FIND! It's located just off of 5th, beyond the illuminated street banner for Ajue Lobster. There is not a lot of ambiance, but the food MORE than makes up for that. One of the biggest Lobster tails I have ever had, which was spectacular at only 20 dollars. We also ordered shrimp in garlic, which was great at 8 dollars, but very unnecessary seeing the size of the Lobster. We tried to go back a few times, but since they are a block off of 5th St. they don't get the huge amount of foot traffic from toursts they, usually close a bit before 10pm...and we didn't get back in time, which was a very sad occassion.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2004
We made it back to Los Brisas, and it is still very unassuming and still great. The lobster tail was a bit smaller, but at 18 dollars we had two! They were just as wonderful as we remembered! So 2 lobsters, guacamole, 3 margaritas, 2 pina coladas and dessert. 50 bucks. Perfect! You can eat here cheaper, but we're talking REALLY GOOD LOBSTER! GO FOR IT!

Updated September 2005
Oh well, it was huge while it lasted. We went to Las Brisas again last week, still great prices, still real size cocktails for 2 dollars, but the lobster is shrinking!
Now we understand that they still get the big tails, but the price has gone up. It still seems to be one of the better bargains, just off 5th street. Would go there again in a heartbeat!

Updated 2007--it's still there, but prices are creeping up at Playa expands and it's "this" close to 5th street

Playa Means Beach

by Blatherwick

Playa means beach dummy. So go hit it. All of the spectacular white sand beaches in Playa del Carmen are public so feel free to explore. Playa is not over-developed like Cancun so there are still places to get away from it a little bit. There are plenty of places still to find an umbrella propped along the breathtaking Mayan Riviera beaches and sip on a margarita.
