Mexico's famous department store Liverpool opened a shiny new location in Playa del Carmen and while I am not much of a shopper, I still had to check it out!

Now that we have our own Liverpool, I fear my wallet is going to suffer. Read More...

I don't think there is a one of us, Playa resident and tourist alike, who has not noticed (or been approached by) the street vendors hocking photo opportunities with the animals, birds and reptiles native to the Riviera Maya. Recently, the offerings have expanded beyond parrots, iguanas and monkeys to include lion and tiger cubs, apparently sedated for the safety of the customers. While certain vendors have been detained for lack of credentials, still more come in their place with better and better documentation. Read More...
