Indigo Beach restaurant: The Gourmet spot next door Playa Palms Hotel

In the most amazing location and decorated in a sang-froid European style right on the white sandy beach next to Playa Palms is Indigo Beach restaurant.

With a few minutes in my hands and a camera I arrived unannounced in the morning to see if they would share a Mexican recipe for breakfast. This time we spoke to Cesar Augusto, cook from Indigo beach, who spontaneously demonstrated how to make “Enchiladas de huevo con chaya y tocino”. If you don´t know what an enchilada is take a spanish dictionary and come to the kitchen with me.

Recipe: Lightly fry corns tortillas and put them on a plate. Make normal scrambled eggs with small pieces of bacon and spinach. Fill the tortillas with these eggs and cover them with a tasty tomato sauce that you like, add a touch of cream, shredded cheese and three slices of onion and breakfast is served! I ended up eating those enchiladas on the house, they were exquisite. A well prepared tomato sauce is key, so learn how to prepare one for this dish. ¡Buen provecho!

Everything happens @ Dirty Martini Lounge , Playa del Carmen.

Within “El Barrio” de Playa del Carmen, only a block away from Playa Palms Beachfront Hotel lies this cozy little lounge. I was there to get some guidance on how to make a special Martini from a very famous little bar, Dirty Martini Lounge and I got two. Dirty Martini Bombay and the Mocca Martini. Pay attention to how they prepare this scrumptious drinks, you might want to show off at a party.

Recipes:

1. Mocha Martini: Mix Ice, vodka, Kahlua, Baileys, liquid chocolate, shake well. Put chocolate on the glass for decoration, serve the mocha martini with 3 coffee beans and salud!

2. Dirty Martiny: Mix Ice, gin,olive juice, Vermouth and shake well. Serve the dirty martiny and decorate it with olives on a stick. Salud!

But what I have to say really about in Dirty Martini Lounge is that I was there for only a few minutes and so much happened! I got to meet endearing owner Karen Lange, got a card for job collaboration from an ex big advertising agency owner, tried a courtesy Caipirinha ¨de la casa¨, met fun Playa Palms Hotel owners by chance (watch them, they say hello at the end of the video), got a special recipe on how to open a beer (I will have to post it in another entry) and watched life unravel as everyone danced, laughed and met one another. What can I say, this little bar has a life of it´s own, anything can happen in that slick little Lounge.

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!
