Only Property in Playa del Carmen to receive Top 3 Awards from Trip Advisor. El Taj Ocean was awarded the 2012 & 2013 TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Award for top hotels in Mexico. It was also chosen as one of the top luxury hotels in Mexico, in addition to one of the trendiest hotels. There are no other hotels in Playa del Carmen that have won all three categories.
More and more articles and authors are optimistic about the economic growth in Mexico. “Today, Mexico exports more manufactured products than the rest of Latin America put together,” The Financial Times reported on Sept. 19, 2012. “Chrysler, for example, is using Mexico as a base to supply some of its Fiat 500s to the Chinese market.”

Playa del Carmen has many great restaurants, but last night we went to Imprevist and were blown away by the gourmet quality, service, and ambiance Imprevist offers. We’d gone for breakfast when we were here in September, but wanted to try dinner because we saw so many people dining there.
Guests at our Condo Hotel properties receive discounts of 10 – 15% at the following restaurants:
El Taj Ocean, Porto Playa, Maya Villa, El Taj Beach, Villas Sacbe: all in the Premier Zone of Playa del Carmen. Walk to your favorite restaurants. Bon Appetite!
Although Playa del Carmen is a walking town, if you want to go to Chichen Itza, Tulum, or other interesting areas of the Mayan Riviera, you can rent a car and drive yourself or you can hire a car and driver for the day. We usually opt for the car and driver because the driver’s always know of a great place to eat along the way, or a secluded beach for a quick dip.
There are many inexpensive places to have eat on 5th Ave, but if you are looking for something more upscale (and delicious!), try Imprevist on First Ave between Calle 16 and Calle 14, in the Maya Villa Condo Hotel building. Imprevist one of Best Restaurants in Playa del Carmen.
Playa has no shortage of restaurants, but it amazes me how many outstanding ones there are. If you want to be a tourist and eat at good restaurants, stay on 5th Ave. If you want to be more like a local and eat at fabulous restaurants, venture off The 5th. If you do, you must go to Los Aguachiles, one of the best restaurants in Playa del Carmen. There are now 2 Aguachiles in Playa, with more to open soon in Cancun.
It’s been a long, busy summer in Chicago, but I’m now where I belong, in Playa del Carmen. Weather is high 80′s during the day, low 80′s at night. Full moon on the water. Been walking the beach, sipping margarita’s, reading books and just relaxing. Great food everywhere we go.
