Sunny Updates from Playa Del Carmen: August 2023!


The vibrant and ever-evolving Playa Del Carmen is brimming with new surprises! As always, I am buzzing with excitement to share the latest sunny scoops from this tropical paradise. Let’s dive into the fun updates this August 2023:

Waxing Lyrical about Tussaud’s!

Hold onto your hats! An exciting Luis Tussaud Wax Museum is rising up. Many may mistake it for β€œMadame Tussauds,” but fun fact: Luis was the great-grandson of the famous Marie Tussaud. With similar delightful attractions, Playa Del Carmen now gets to flaunt its own wax wonder alongside cities like Niagara Falls and Pattaya. Located conveniently on the bustling 5th Avenue by Calle 14 Bis, this spot promises to be a sparkling addition to the Playa tourist trail.

Smiling Safely: Police Checkpoints Level Up

For those moments when you’re zipping around town, Playa’s police checkpoints just got a makeover! Ensuring everyone’s safety, these checkpoints have now got a new setup to streamline traffic, even during those tropical rain showers. It’s all about ensuring your vacation vibes stay uninterrupted.

Beachfront Facelift with a New Building

Playa’s scenic beachfront is getting a glamorous new neighbor! Remember the Fusion Restaurant on Calle 6 by the beach? In its place, a grand new hotel is making waves. It’s reshaping the iconic Playa silhouette, and we can’t wait to see it shine!

A Spruced-Up Colosio Avenue

Driving in Playa? Avenida Colosio has received some TLC with fresh curbs, new plantings, and clearer traffic signals. While there’s more to do, this revamp adds a splash of order and color to your drive!
