Just out of curiosity
We have never been to Mexico before but an planning a trip to Playa del carmenin late Feb 2014.
Our initial plans are to go all inclusive poss in one of the Riu properties in Playacar.
However ....when holidaying in europe we usualy gobthe self carering route as we love choosing where to eat abd drink on an evening and having delved deeper into the forums and looked at the restaurant and bar reviews , we are now intrigued as to whether this would be possible in Playa del carmen.
We would appreciate and advice from members who have experience of this option along with info on any good places to stay, and any other info you may wish to share
We are not looking for five star luxury , just friendly and clean with air con and a pool within easy walking to a good selection of bars and restaurants .
Cheers in advance
