I moved to Playa Del Carmen by accident lol. I went for an extended escape from the United States of America and fell in love with Mexico and decided to become an Expat permanently. I have learned so much by living in the Playa Del Carmen/Tulum area and I am excited to share the ultimate plug list with YOU. Please mention my name when reaching out to the companies below like Black Travel Gram, Playa Noir, and The Tribe Tulum.
Arriving in Cancun Airport- Keep in mind UBER cannot drive to the airport so you should coordinate a pick up from your hotel/resort. You may also schedule a ride with the ADO- click here to schedule a ride.
