I've been in Playa 3 weeks now. My plan was to stay for a few months and get out of the winter. I thought that it would be fun to do nothing except lie on the beach, walk up and down 5th Ave and read books all day...and it is...except now that I've been doing this for 3 weeks, I'm getting a little bored. Does anyone know of somewhere I can volunteer or is there anything going on that is fun and free? Since I'm going to be here for a while, I'm sort of on a tight budget. Any help is appreciated. Cheers!

There is a local animal shelter. I think the name is Peanut Pet shelter. Do a search on these boards and you should find lots of information.

You can also explore outside of Playa. Take a bus to Tulum for the day. Go to Coba.

Go to Isla Mujeres.

Check out Merida for a few days.

If you are REALLY adventurous and have some time hop a bus to Palenque and spend a few days.

On a budget? All the places I've suggested have a clean safe hostel. About $14 a night or less.

Have fun!
