Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Recent vacation in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, to recharge artistic batteries and quality tequila levels.

Here are a few photos. You can see the beach, flowers and of course glimpses of magical place that Playa can be at night.

This is a house and palm trees by the ocean.

Playa del Carmen at night. Jardins De Marietta. A lovely inner garden with artist galleries and an incomparable atmosphere. You can see some benches where people can sit and enjoy.

Several open-air restaurants with lit lanterns of different shapes and sizes in the trees. Two of them are La Piola and La Cueva del Chango. This is common practice in Playa del Carmen.
