Moving to playa soon

Hi there I'm new to this forum and I'm moving to playa in August! I could use some advice on where to find a nice room to rent. Also I could use some new friends since I don't know anybody there (: thanks

Hey, I'll be arriving at the end of July. Why don't you tell us something about yourself and what you like to do?

Hi pranayama.

Are you moving there for good or just temporarily. I'm from Mexico but I've been living in Colorado USA for the last 2 years working as a nanny. My hobbies are all kind of outdoor activities. Here I like to hike, snowboard, swim, run, work out etc. oh and I'm 28. How about you?

I expect to be there for a while, let's see how I like it. Sounds like you're very active. There's a running thread on this forum and I just got some good advice about gyms too. My big thing is yoga so I'm looking forward to practicing at some of the local studios. I'm 37. By the way, there's apartments advertised on andale.mx, but you can search the threads on this forum for more info as well.

Thanks Andy! I just tried to send them an email through their website but not sure if it went through as a blank screen came up when I clicked send. I guess I could always go knock on their door on Monday, lol. I better start packing...

Me too! We should go try all the yoga places so we can report back to the forum since we're "experts" . There's an Australian girl on here too, let's make a yoga group I say!

Yogaloft, Yoga District are dedicated studios. Cava Casa offers donation-based classes (with great teachers) and even the Gym has good yoga as most of the teachers there are excellent.

Haven't heard of Yoga District or Cava Casa. Where are they? Any online presence? Thanks for the heads up! Namaste

Hi Sofia! I'm moving to Playa del Carmen in August too! With my partner and our daughter, but I do activities without them too. I need to do some exercise so it's good if I find some friends too! Im 34, from Montreal.
