Mamita’s Beach Club: Day #4 in Playa del Carmen

July 19, 2018

For Day 4 we decided to explore the downtown Playa (which looks everything but a Mexican city, it seems more a little Miami beach with brand new stylish condos, souvenir shops, bars for all tastes). On the way we met several Iguanas, and Tommy was super excited (Iguanas didn’t run away despite the screams!).

We ended up in Mamita’s beach club, where we rented two sun beds by the kids pool for 700 M$ (including 300M$ in food or drinks). Tommy and Giò Giò had plenty of fun. Tommy got fascinated of two older kids. He tried to interact, but clearly he was to small for them. They considered him a sort of nice pet: the girl made him a couple of cuddles. Tommy’s eyes got heart shaped! She immediately run away to play with her brother, leaving little Tommy confused.

The place was not bad, but the waitress were too much zealous (i.e. trying to sell more drinks and food even when you didn’t yet finish the ones on your table). Also, the girl with the camera insisted too much trying on selling us her shots of the family. She stopped when Michela told her I am a photographer… which is a lie, but you need to survive somehow! Finally
the kids pool got crowded of Mexican adults (without kids). So around 15 we decided to walk back to the studio to relax.
Honestly Mamita’s Beach Club is not a place I would recommend for families. The area for kids is pretty small and all the rest focus on adults willing to party day and night. Much better a simpler club, like the one in Punta Esmeralda.

Walking back on 5th Avenue

On the way back, we did a little bit of shopping. Tommy got a small guitar to play the mariachi and Giò Giò a maraca. We also had a nice ice cream at Bendito Pecado. 4th Giò’s dummy went missing. Basically lost dummies consume our daily budget.

    Il Messico sembra un luogo pieno di colori e di vita, una meta che dovrei iniziare a considerare per un prossimo viaggio 😉

      consigliamo vivamente 🙂 se serve aiuto chiedi pure! se i bimbi sono piccoli, meglio evitare l’estate se si va in Yucatan o altre zone molto calde in quel periodo (l’altipiano – Città del Messico va benone), se no si rischia di non usare bene la giornata per non farli morire di caldo.

    Anche noi siamo stati a visitare Plata del Carmen durante il nostro viaggio in Quintana Roo. La Quinta Avenida turistica ma anche caratteristica!

      Hai ragione Monica, molto turistica. Per fortuna noi eravamo un po’ defilati, meglio con i piccoli 🙂
