In the past three months we have been getting questions to our inbox, asking info about where to go, where to eat, where to stay when they come to Playa for the first time, where to buy Real Estate and even advice on wether they should stay here for good!

So we are glad to invite you to ask questions about Playa!  either to our Facebook Inbox, facebook wall or the following email:!

Here is the last inbox message that we got: 

Adam Jones– Hey, Question- It’s my first time going to Playa, How do I get to the underground caves? Do I have to pay for a tour to visit them? I hope you can help me, I have seen some posts about those on your facebook so I hope you can help me.

ALL ABOUT PLAYA: Hello! Of course we can help you! We recommend -Azul cenote, this is an above ground cenote so if you want to experience a cenote but being underground makes you feel uncomfortable, this may be a good choice. It may not be the biggest cenote in the area, but it has much to offer. It is beautiful and the water is crystal clear, with many varieties of fish. It is very easy to get to by collectivo from either Playa del Carmen or Tulum. Just let the driver know where you are going. Admission is 70 pesos and life jackets are available for rent. The water does get quite deep In some areas. Bring snorkel gear and water shoes, as the stone leading to the pool is quite rough and slippery. It is best to get there early in the morning before the crowds arrive and when the fish are most visible. They tend to be a bit shy as the people increase. While snorkelling is a fun way to experience the cenote, just a swim in the water is worth the trip. Very cool and refreshing! You may even catch a glimpse of one of the resident monkeys! Dangling your feet in the water will get you a ‘pedicure’ courtesy of some of the little fish, which nibble at your toes! Ticklish! There is also an area about 20 feet or so above the water from which you can jump into the cenote. Lots of fun! In general, the are was clean and well maintained, and bathrooms are available near the entrance. You can easily spend a couple of hours here.

So send your questions! We will be glad to answer them in the best way we can!
