moving from Merida

Hi all,

just thought I'd take a minute to say hello. My husband and I (35 and 33) are moving from Merida to Playa in November. We'll have been in Merida 6 months by then, and although we were planning to stay here longer term, some various circumstances have lead us to getting a place in Playa for 6 months. After that, we'll see which place we'll stay in.

There are some great girls meetup groups and French groups that we have been a part of in Merida, and would love to hear of anything similar in Playa.

see you soon!

Welcome To Playa!

My partner and I have been in Mexico for two years, the first year we spent in Merida restoring a colonial home in centro, the second we decided to change things up and now we split our time between our home in Merida and PDC. The transition between places really is dramatic and Playa is a wonderful place to live. There are many groups here for all sorts of things, and if it doesn't already exist you could easily start a french group as there are MANY french speakers in Playa. This little town has a strong community and there is always something to do or someone to socialize with. Hope your move goes smoothly

I am sure you will come to love Playa del Carmen. I have been in Merida which is an absolutely amazing place, however my favorite place really is Playa del Carmen.
I am Danish myself and are living in Playa with a Canadian boyfriend. We have been living here on and off the past 5 years but are here to stay very long term if not forever.

I have looked for some meet ups here as well as it can be hard starting a social life a new place with brand new people. I can't seem to find that many to be honest, so if other people or you do, please let me know as well.
There is a website though which is called interNations that has a Cancun forum. They have events in Playa sometimes and you can create your own event in that forum as well. You can ask to join the website yourself or if you have problems send me a personal message here and I can invite you to the group.

I hope you both will come to love Playa, but I don't see how you wouldn't

Hi! I too, am moving to Playa soon (April) with my husband and we hope to make some new friends! I was thinking about making a blog with meet-up spots for others who are interested in some new friends too! Or we can just post on here like DvdH did...(By the way, I am a multi-media designer of sorts, so maybe I should meet you guys!)
