Instead of having to put on warm gloves, a heavy coat and snow boots to go out, try spending Christmas and New Year holidays in Playa del Carmen. The streets, shops and restaurants are filled with the Christmas spirit! They all put up lights and decorations in preparation for the glorious holiday. Everyone is feeling the excitement and is spreading their joyful cheer.
Playa’s 5th Avenue becomes a holiday wonderland with all its stores decorated with seasonal flare. There is garland swing with lights hanging everywhere as you stroll down the pedestrian friendly street. The malls bring out oversized gift boxes that sit alongside absolutely fabulously decorated Christmas trees. Animated reindeers pulling Santa’s sleigh, elves working hard to get all the presents ready for Santa, and let us not forget the nativity scenes showing what the season is all about.
Just think, all the holidays’ excitement and outdoor activities without the cold weather. Just imagine waking up in the morning and having breakfast on your patio or at your favorite outdoor café. The birds are singing harmony, palm trees gently swaying against a slight Caribbean breeze, and plenty of foliage in full bloom can brighten anyone’s day!
Everyone’s spirits are flying so high when celebrating the holidays in such an enjoyable setting!
As the day starts with perfect weather, you might decide to take a walk on the beach or better yet, go for a dip in the beautiful Caribbean turquoise waters. When lunch time starts to roll around, find a beachside restaurant or an open air market and enjoy your favorite cuisine. After you have satisfied your appetite, visit one or several of the many shops, boutiques or malls. Spending time shopping when the atmosphere is so festive can make you lose all track of time.
Christmas decorations are so beautiful when the sun goes down and the stars come out. The twinkling of lights match peoples smiles when laughing and parading down the sidewalks. Everyone’s spirits are flying so high when celebrating the holidays in such an enjoyable setting. Families are walking together with kids pointing here and there. Couples are hand in hand whispering and motioning towards seasonal lights and decorations.
All this is happening while wearing shorts, sleeveless shirts and either light shoes or open-toed sandals. When the evening comes to an end and home is just around the corner, just remember that all this will be here when you wake up in the morning. There is nowhere else you will want to be in the world than Playa del Carmen! Treat yourself with an experience that others only dream of. Live the Mayan Riviera life! Feliz Navidad!
