The beach is very accessible from town and there is nice mix of beach clubs, where you pay a nominal fee for the use of a chair and/or umbrella for the day, and open beach to lay on a towel.

There is everything from small local Mexican boutiques to big-name stores. I especially loved a little shop called Narcisa, with reasonably priced Mexican designed clothing that was flattering and comfy. Shalom also has fun Bohemian styles.

Why do you recommend Playa del Carmen for food?

There's a good selection of restaurants which are mostly comprised of Mexican, Italian and Seafood. There are lots of other options as well, and at different price points, so there seems to be something for everyone. I love that a lot of the restaurants are on 5th avenue, which makes for great people watching.
