People: Ode to Joy in Playa del Carmen.

What constitutes good traveling is relative based on our own subjective values, like comfort, beauty, location, price, weather, culture, cuisine, nature, activities, silence, etc. But there is one unavoidable aspect of traveling that is a part of every one of us because of the way it affects our sense of integration to a new place and how soft is our entrance to a different environment is. It is: People.

We can always find the dissonant note in a symphony everywhere, but the truth is that each nation, or better yet every town, has its own tempo when you experience its people. For those who have been here before and those who are yet to come, here is a sample of the mexican rythm in the Riviera Maya. The softness, the sweet disposition and smiles are the bells, cords and percussion to a natural wish to please you.

Sometimes overlooked, but never unaffected by it, we travel.

What we dare to do infront of a webcam in Playa del Carmen


When we are communicating with someone through a webcam we tend to cut everything and everyone around us off. We focus on the camera and we visualize a dear one watching us on the other side, we can almost see them watching us and smiling as we share a moment. That is why we do such funny things, our consciousness is lost to the outer audience. We at Playa Palms Hotel will not cease to enjoy these brief moments when we are fortunate enough to be the observer in such encounters. You inspire us everyday with your hearts!

How is Tequila made?

Only a few blocks from Playa Palms Hotel in 5th Avenue you can find a small tequila museum in Hacienda Tequila. I walked unannounced to see if there was someone who could talk to us about the process of making tequila. Alberto received me with a smile and within two minutes we started a very interesting tour into the world of tequila. Do not be caught off guard from now on and learn what to look for when you buy tequila and much more.
