Escapes: Playa del Carmen, Mexico


Again with the amazing vacation house. While I freeze my but off in the chilly Atlantic, Betty Riaz of Stil, one of my favorite boutiques in Boston (I’ve bought many a dress and loads of jewelry there), spends family vacations at their home in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, frolicking in the Caribbean Sea. (Playa del Carmen is almost at the very tip of the Mexican peninsula.) When they’re back in Boston attending to everyday life, it’s available to rent.

Playa del Carmen is apparently a hip town, and the condo is in a great downtown location. It has floor to ceiling glass windows that look over a tropical garden and pool lounge, hardwood floors, and terrace. There are two bedrooms, an open living space, and flat screen TV (with channels in English and Spanish – wouldn’t want to miss an episode of Gossip Girl!)

Betty is très fashionable, and so is this property. Have a look:
