Private Taxi Service in Playa del Carmen – Senor Agustin Cruz – Taxi # 2781

After reading so many reviews on TripAdvisor about Senor Agustin Cruz, we decided to give him a try.

As I mentioned in my previous post titled No Car, No Problem, we do not own a car here. With affordable public transportation, it did not make sense to have a car in this walking community.  However, as I have also mentioned, when we plan on taking a shopping trip to Costco in Cancun or some other store where we may need the additional space, we take a taxi.

Recent Changes in Using PayPal to Send Money to Mexico from the United States.

Although we live in Mexico, our bank account is in the United States (U.S.).  Keeping our accounts in the U.S. has been, and continues to be, an easy, effective, and safe way to manage our finances abroad.

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to dine at one of the local restaurants on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  After chatting with our hostess, reviewing the menu and placing our orders, we started doing one of our favorite things; people watching.

Day Trip - Mia Reef Resort

We treated ourselves to an amazing day pass at the Mia Reef Isla Mujeres.  The day was adventurous and indulgent, but well worth it.  The beach is breathtakingly beautiful, with an abundance of loungers to lure you into a relaxed state and a nap.  In addition to the wonderful loungers, they also have umbrellas that can be placed and positioned wherever your heart desires.  Just let the attendant know, and your wish is their command.  And if you’re not ready to chill on a lounger, there are plenty of other comfortable seating areas around the resort; all to accommodate you!
