Mexico proved to be the perfect little getaway for a long weekend. It was easy to get to, simple to navigate and 80 °F and sunny in late November – everyday. We stayed in downtown Playa del Carmen at the Maya Bric Hotel and it was the perfect spot. It was safe, clean, relatively quiet for being in the center of the city and inexpensive compared to other hotels in the same area. Downtown Playa del Carmen has a ton of little shops with authentic Mexican goods, as well as stellar restaurants and a lively bar scene. We also took a day trip to Tulum to see the ruins and the beautiful beaches. Highly recommend going to Tulum if you’re in the area – it was by far the best part of my trip!
