Playa del Carmen has recently undergone rapid development with new luxury beach condominiums, great restaurants, boutiques and entertainment options. There are plans to develop even more shopping places, American chain restaurants, including Hard Rock Cafe, as well as a small upmarket shopping plaza offering designer boutiques, a cinema with movies in English, luxury spas, and the first international House of Blues entertainment night club.
The Playa del Carmen local community and government have attempted to retain Playa del Carmen's reputation and charm as a small fishing village and artists' colony, without it becoming as large and metropolitan as Cancún (good luck). The city passed an ordinance limiting buildings to five stories but for a new BMW gift to the right person permits for a skyscraper could be issued. Playa del Carmen is currently expanding north beyond the Colosio section and on the other side of highway 307, the Ejido.
The building inspector is trying to decide if he should issue a permit to a new family vacation all-inclusive hotel.
The builders of the project throw gold coins into the scales while this inspector plays solitare. He cheats.
He swore he wouldn't wear that outfit but the photographer gave him a nice gift to pose in it.
A building inspector puts a coin in a vending machine near a Playa del Carmen hotel and gets a Coca-Cola. He puts another coin in and gets a second Coca-Cola. He puts a third coin in and gets another Coke. A tourist staying in an all-inclusive Playa del Carmen hotel, who gets all he wants to eat and drink included in his stay, standing behind him waiting says, wow you certainly do like Coca-Cola.
Why stop playing when I'm winning, replies the building inspector.
Instead of giving a building inspector the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators and building inspectors.
Everyone down here on vacation are partying and digging the wide beach not paying any mind to building permits. Come on down. Party. We have your ideal Playa del Carmen hotel for your vacation.
It's sure we have just the right Playa del Carmen lodgings just for you and yours.
Allow us to make your well deserved holiday the perfect one as we've done for so many others.

Somewhere over the rainbow this agency is true
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true in the eve when you book with CancunSteve Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
And good vacations await me.
the Mayan culture is awesome. Did you know they had 20 days in their week.
Yes sir. Imix, Kan, Chikchen, duck, Lamat, bigbat, Ok, Eb, Kawak, talk.
The ancient Maya were great visionaries. What were they smoking? The present Pelicano Inn is great vacationary. The Mayans dedicated thousands of years to the observations of cycles of time. When the old leaders developed the calendars, they entered into the cosmic consciousness to discover the way of things. The Mayans understood everything is cyclic in nature. They studied the cycle of insects, plants, rioters in Ferguson Missouri, humans, the earth, the solar system, cycles of the cosmos, Universal cycles, and even lunar cycles. They created 20 calendars. My favorite was one of some ladies on the wall of the auto repair shop.
The western world knows of five. Today the living Maya are allowed to speak of 15 of these calendars. Five of these Calendars they dare not speak of at this time. These are the Calendars of the cosmic ancestors.
What do you think are in those five secret calendars?
a ♦ An Arab country wins the Nobel prize in economics
b ♦ Hilary Clinton is honest
c ♦ big solar storms reach the earth
d ♦ CancunSteve gives hundreds of dollars of discounts in addition to low prices and personal service with your booking

Somewhere in Playa find this statue.
It is magic.
If you should click on the RED circle on the stomach get a secret message.
If you should book with us God Bless and know you got the best price for your Playa del Carmen lodgings for sure.
The statue is of the Buddha. The Buddha was known to say no one can save you but yourself. Only you can walk the path.
Only you can have the good wisdom to book with the good guys at CancunSteve.
Buddha also said three things cannot be hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
And the truth is we get you a better deal than Travelitis or Worst Night or Bookie dot Con.
He also said the mind is everything; what you think you become. So think GOOD VALUE; think THE BEST.
Then forget the rest and book with you know who.
Know for your Playa del Carmen vacation, doesn't matter if it's all-inclusive or lodgings only.
Even if your Playa del Carmen hotel is not directly on a beach, by law all beaches here are public. Do any one of them.
Great snorkeling awaits you with colorful underwater life forms. Coral and tropical fish.
The Playa beach begins at the ferry docks.
The beach then continues along southward and northward. Walking north you encounter the main beach which runs the length of the city along the sea shore.
Some of the hotels and resorts run parallel to the beach and many are either on the beach or a close walk to the beach.
It is nice to stay in a room that is facing the ocean but it is not that important (after all you only go back to the room to sleep).
Of course you pay extra for this kind of lodging.
Walking to the beach is easy. If you are trying to reduce costs, stay at a hotel close to the beach, not on it.
All beaches in Playa del Carmen are open to the public. There are numerous access points to the beach all along the coast. The farther north you walk the less access points there are.
Although all beaches are public, access to some beaches are restricted because of private property. You cannot cross private property to access a beach. Unless you just ignore the sign and jump the fence.
The main beach runs from the ferry docks to Calle 14 which is where Gran Porto Real is.
The sand in Playa is white sand, not powder. Powder sand is found in Cancun. White sand is more coarse, like salt. Not as cool on a warm day as Cancun sand.
Above and to the left see a family enjoying the waters of the beach playing ball.
There are bars and snack joints located all along the coast in Playa.
You need not walk more than 50 yards at any point to get a drink or eats.
The distance varies from the actual water line to buildings all along the coast. At the main beach everything is close.
Shown on the left typical Playacar beach.
Playacar is an upscale gated community resort area adjacent to Playa del Carmen and part of Playa del Carmen.
There are golf courses of course.
Playacar does not have public restaurants on the beach so bring your own snacks and something to drink.
No noisy beach bars around here.
No trinket salesmen either. Nor dealers in futures. Just cool sugar-white sand against turquoise waters here near the Playacar condos.
Snorkeling is great when the water is calm.
We do offer condo rentals here good people.
Paso del Sol condos Sixty-five condos of both thee and two bedrooms.
Fully equipped modern lovely kitchens.
Some with washers and dryers!
Magical art work greets you in Playa del Carmen a short walk from the lodgings booked with us. Take a good look at the exotic painting to the left. Notice how the king and queen have halos of light turquoise.
That's because they booked their Playa del Carmen lodgings with you know who.
Now notice how the witch in the green dress brewing pozole (lower right) has no halo.
IF you move the magic blue ball found in the cauldron to the left with your mouse it will transform into a blue halo for the green witch. Try.
After that no matter where you should move the halo it will return to the head of the green witch cooking pozole.
Pazole is a popular food down here in Playa del Carmen. Surely you will find some in the hotel and or in the restaurants which are nearby.
Great pazole and more good Mexican food around the corner from the hotel on Fifth Avenue Playa del Carmen.
Near the bed and breakfast hotels and lodgings only hotels.
Many of the all-inclusive resorts have this on their menus.
The coast of Quintana Roo where Playa del Carmen is situated is on the Carribbean Sea.
The climate is tropical and rainy periods in September with rainfalls that last an hour in the afternoon then stop.
Some history: during the 16th and 17th century the population on the coast of Quintana Roo including Playa del Carmen suffered numerous attacks from pirates like Johnny Depp who found refruge in the Carribbean islands.
Today the only attack in Quintanna Roo is from the sleazy time-share man who is more rampant in Cancun than in laid-back Playa del Carmen. Here in this laid-back paradise you'll find 'attacks' from girls offering braids (trenzas) all along 5th Avenue of today's Playa del Carmen near your Playa del Carmen lodgings.
Going south from Playa del Carmen is the Xcaret ecololgical park where amoung the numerous activities you can swim with dolphins (not cheap). Remember you can swim with Joel Gondelman for free.
South from Xcaret is Akumal.
Across from Playa del Carmen is Cozumel.
Typical scenes like this are yours as you walk out of those discount Playa del Carmen lodgings be it all-inclusive like Gran Porto Real beachfront resort, or Golondrinas bed and breakfast in town, or upscale lodgings in the one and only El Faro a Playa del Carmen landmark.
