I must admit to being amused by those that rush to the defense of this city. Is it really that important what others think about it?
Where is your new "hot" vacation spot?

For those tired of Playa, if you have the time (long flight), you can go to Arraial do Cabo, Brazil. Here is the map

Sort of an old Playa look. I will stick with Playa. For those that do not like it anymore, call it changes or call it progress, or both, please go somewhere else.

Mexicans that travel here for the first time and for that matter, most tourists that travel here for the first time, really know nothing (and probably don't care either), about the "old" Playa, the fishing village. I have met 2 couples in the last few days , one couple from Canada and one from the U.S., both couples taking their first trip here, both couples around 50 years old and both couples ready to pack it in and move to Playa. To each his own. I had a 5 year plan to move here which included liquidating everything I had in the U.S.. A little planning can go a long way to future happiness IMO.
And Mexicans can't get enough of Playa. Probably safer than from wherever they came from, the beach , the shopping, etc., etc., etc.
