Playa del Carmen March 2000

My next trip to Mexico was in March 2000. I took my daughter Tara with me to Playa del Carmen. On the flight to Cancun I told Tara that I bought a couple of air mattresses to float in the water. She asked why we couldn’t use them in the pool. I told her that the hotel we were going to stay at had no pool. She couldn’t believe that I booked a hotel with no pool. I told her to just wait and see how wonderful and calm the water was and that we didn’t need a pool. I also told her she could go topless if she wanted to since a lot of women did.
We stayed at Pelicanos Inn on Calle 8 which was a great location right on the beach. The room rate included a breakfast buffet.
The 2nd day on the beach Tara said that she hadn’t seen any topless women. Later that day she saw a women who was topless who actually walked into the indoor restaurant. Tara thought that was pretty odd.
We had a great stay in PDC. We spent a full day at Xcaret including the night show. The night show alone was worth the admission price.
I didn’t take a camera and only had a few copies of photos that Tara took but don’t have them scanned to my computer. There photos are courtesy of a Google image search.

This was the same view we had from our 2nd floor room
