Hi from cold, but SUNNY Wisconsin!
 
Just trying to get some info on Playa del Carmen. Have been to Cancun numerous times, but this year I am headed to the Royal Haciendas in PDC. Getting very excited, but could use any advice or info on PDC. Thanks!
Trisha

Welcome Trisha. Nice to see another Wisconsinite on board. I'm sure you'll love PdC. There is a lot of great info on this site so I would start out by just browsing around and if you need to ask any questions, ask away.

trishab83 01-08-2007 02:53 PM

Thanks! I'm learning quite a bit already, but I will definitely let you know when any questions arise.

Welcome Trisha. Another Wisconsite here. Let me know if I can be of any help to you.

Should have checked my spelling - it's Wisconsinite.

Welcome!
The best advice I could give anyone is DO NOT limit yourself to your resort. Spend most of your evenings in town or you will miss most of what PDC has to offer.

Hi, fellow Wisconsonite!
 
I'm joining the board for the first time tonight, too! I'm from just outside Madison, and will update my profile shortly. I've not stayed in Playa del Carmen, but have booked my family for an 8-night stay at the Viva Wyndham Maya due to no openings at the Akumal Beach Resort. Don't you love this weather???? :)

Welcome from a FIB:emb:

Yes, I do love this weather. You are talking about WI and not PDC! Although, I love the weather in PDC more. What the heck, it was kindof cold this a.m. We need more El Nino!!! I am jealous - I don't have any plans to go to PDC until next Thanksgiving - hopefully if my son the mailman can get the time off - a lot of mailmen are hunters!

I'm in Madison too! I am loving this sunny Wisconsin weather we're having though this morning its quite cold. Guess I might have to break out the winter jacket after all. That's right all of you non-Wisconsinites reading this---its January 9 and I have yet to wear my winter jacket!! There were probably a few days I SHOULD have worn it, but didn't. And we don't have snow either. They say global warming is a bad thing, but I've never been a fan of the snow...:)

That's what I love about staying non-AI, you don't have to feel obligated to stay at your resort because you've already spent the money on your meals, drinks, etc. This being our first time in PdC, we are definitely planning to spend quite a bit of time in the town, checking out 5th Ave, shopping, dining, etc. Though I plan to spend even MORE time laying on the beach, I am excited to get to know Playa.

Welcome to Playa Info, you will find a world of helpful information on this site. This will be the first time in 5 years that I haven't been able to get to PDC in March, It's so depressing, so I'm really liking this very un Wisconsin like winter weather we've been having.
As mentioned above, make sure you get into Playa a couple nights to get the real flavor of this wonderful little city (or not so little any more).

Hi Trisha and Welcome!! The shining sun is great today...althought a tad bit windy and nippy out! :) I know we have been spoiled though with our unseasonably warm weather.

Looking for advice? Try and book a tour through Playa.info. I hear all of them are great. Try the Sea to Cenote tour! Also, get a Playa Deal Card from this site. You will rack up savings in no time. Just remember to use it.

And as always...don't forget to place your vote here . Wisconsin is in 3rd place with California sneaking up behind us. :eek:

Cool, more Wisconsinites! We're from Milwaukee and finally have what you'd call "winter" :mad: :mad:
We'll be down for trip 4 (or is it 5) in March for Peepstock and can hardly wait. There are all kinds of fun events planned for us Playainfo peeps.
Take your time going thru all the threads here, there is tons of great info. I spent several months here on the forums before my first trip and actually felt immediately at home the minute I got off the bus.

WELCOME TO PARADISE :chupa-vin :cheers-st :island: :p:
