We are one week away from one of the most loved, wonderful time of the year!
It can also be a bit of a stressful time! For this reason many people will escape the logistics of the holidays and head down to spend Christmas in Playa del Carmen!
The newspapers reported a 98% occupancy rate in the Riviera Maya starting December 20th which means an extraordinary amount of Americans and Canadians will be decking the halls down south this Christmas.
