Americans and Canadians living in Playa del Carmen enjoy life on the beach. They enjoy relaxing in the sun, sipping martinis at nice bars, etc.
But many expats also spend some time giving back to their community, helping out, making it a better place for expats and Mexicans alike.

Americans and Canadians come, walk the dogs, play with them, bathing cute puppies and generally have great time; you’ll see in this video that this is not only responsible living, but a great way to enjoy life:
Life in Playa del Carmen is about relaxation on the beach, and enjoying an affordable life in a beautiful, warm place. Yet, there’s a lot that expats can do to add to that.
