Our last salad together in the airport before telling each other “See you next trip!”
This is the last picture in Playa del Carmen. After we left our lunch we left this tourist town, going directly to the airport.
Our light healthy salads for a lunch in one of the restaurants of Playa del Carmen.
Beaches of Playa del Carmen.
The roof of the red hotel. It looked less “attractive” during the day because it was full of tubes (that we personally did not love). Also when booking the hotel, we hoped that the roof floor was covered with real grass… Anyway, the roof is very unique and I think there are many people who enjoy it (especially at night).
Even the mannequins did not look SO scary!
What’s interesting, during the day the red hotel looked fine :) It is impossible to predict that it changes so much during the night :)
I am red! Of course, everything is red in this hotel :)
There were many restaurants to stop for a meal, but we choose “Cocina Mexinana” for its romantic nooks where we felt very cosy in a nice night atmosphere. At first, we were scared by a raccoon that was making a loud noise close to us! But then we relaxed and really enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent and the food was great. We did not expect so big portions though! Well, that’s a result of competition! :) We, tourists, benefit from it :)
One picture of Playa del Carmen is enough to share the experience of how this place looks like at night. Actually, everything looks the same. Just plain streets with kiosks, stores, restaurants and hotels on the both sides of the streets. Seems this small town is for tourists’ getting rest, shop and go to the beach. We personally did not find what else to do there.
After settling down in the hotel room, we were ready to go outside, get aquatinted with Playa del Carmen and to find something nice for a dinner :)
I was first scared but then laughed because of another mannequin on the balcony. It was an unexpected surprise to find it in the corner outside the room :)
Wow! Red room! Well, makes sense to make a room completely red in red hotel. But why, why are there the super bright picture of girls above the bed? Luckily, we found how to turn that light off. And luckily, it was our the only night in a red room. One night in that room was enough for a new memorable experience :)
One of the weird additions (that, probably, makes the red hotel, very different and unique) is the mannequins all over the place. Sometimes, in the darkness, we would get confused whether that was a human being or not. It was quite odd. We were wondering what to expect from our room!
After we left Chichen Itza, for a night we stopped in a small fishing town called Playa del Carmen. That night we were excited to stay in an “awesome” hotel, that looked super cool from the site (with a garden roof and lots of creativity). But when we arrived at night we actually were freaked out! Absolutely everything about this hotel was lit in red! Does not it look scary? Well, for a party people it might had been fun, but for us, lovers for nice boutique hotels, this was way too much. There was party during the night, there was more red in every new corner that we explored AND there were mannequins!
We have never have any experience like that! And, to be honest, we do not want another :)
p.s. I will mention about mannequins in the next post :)
