Mexico with Kids

Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins in Mexico


Playa Del Carmen is one of our favorite cities in Mexico. Although it is only 45 minutes away from Cancun, it feels like a world apart.

I must admit, we are a little bias because we spent over a year calling this beach city home.

When our family gap year came to a halt, we decided to move to Playa Del Carmen. At the time, we had never been to Playa Del Carmen and didn't know what to expect. Little did we know we'd end up falling in love with the food, city, culture, and people.

After spending over a year in Playa Del Carmen, we got a grasp on some of the cool spots, local favorites, best food, great coffee, and kid-friendly beaches.

Although we do some touristy things, we like to focus on local places. Also, using local services helps us save money. You'll be shocked to learn how we live on $900 per month.
