Can I be a peep?

Hi everyone,
I fell in love with Playa(saying it like a local), when we landed there a few years ago via cruise ship. Only got to spend a few hours there twice(two different cruises), but I am coming back in 12 days, for over a week this time. I haven't seen anyone else here with kiddos, but I have 2. I'm a single, semi-retired father... well not retired as a father... but you know... from work. Come to think of it that's not true, being a single father for the past ten years is a lot work. Anyway, I digress.
I try to travel a lot with my kids. I think its good for them to get to experience other cultures, and Playa seems to be steeped in many other cultures, along with the wonderful "Mayomexican" one. (did I just make up a word?)
I am so glad I found this "place" on the web. Sooo much good info on food,... and food, and other stuff as well. I've been running four miles three times a week to lose some weight, so I can afford to gain it back eating GOOD food.

Love to hear any suggestions for things to do with teens(13 and 15), and for how I could enjoy myself at the same time... I know that's not gonna be a problem though.

Ciao,

Shawn

Welcome to the forum.
Playa with two teens....Good for you. Kids grow up so fast. Tours and the beach would be your best bet. The Mayan ruins would be a great place to go. Tulum is close. The others are a bit of a ride. As an ex single father (now remarrried) I wish I would have taken my two to Playa/Riviera Maya area.

Welcome, I believe as soon as you venture in this board you are a peep!! Check out peep stuff thread, We are having a peep meet Mar 25 7pm at the tequila barrel about 30 peeps attending!!
Do the zip line tour with your kids they will love it , its a great day!! Another good day trip would be Xel-ha or just head out to half moon bay at Akumal and snorkel, swim relax!!

Hi Shawn,
Welcome. Teenage kids? That's cool, we brought our teenage son last year, he soaked it up like a sponge! He had a blast, of course if you come with that intention so that your kids can enjoy it....they (and yourself) will have a wonderful time. Check out the playa.info tours, we did and my son really enjoyed it.
Good luck and have fun!
