Playa del Carmen is a unique place with a special personality that offers one-of-a-kind experiences for all visitors. Because music is always with you and fills the best moments of your life with emotions, we thought it would be interesting to build a playlist with five songs you shouldn’t leave out when you visit this tropical paradise.
What was our selection criteria?
We only considered the atmospheres you’ll encounter, the landscapes you’ll enjoy and the experiences you’ll live—that was the criteria.
Are you ready?
Cozumel- Cerati and Melero
Gustavo Cerati has always been a versatile singer-songwriter. In this song it feels like both his music and lyrics invite you to become a swallow flying over this marvelous island, floating on the sea breeze.
Wouldn’t It Be Nice – The Beach Boys
There’s a reason why the Beach Boys are called that: their music is so light, fun and easy to listen to, you’ll want it to be the soundtrack to having fun in the sand with your friends.
It’s Oh So Quiet – Björk
There will come a time when sunset will fall as softly as a feather, while the birds fly back to their nests and tourists take a nap. Everything will be peaceful and quiet, and then will wake up all over again.
Mi gente – J Balvin
J Balvin is a singer-songwriter who writes lyrics everyone can relate to. “Mi Gente,” besides being catchy, is an anthem for the cosmopolitan, for people from all over the world coming together in a brotherhood—but not a corny brotherhood, one that goes beyond the heart.
En el mar – Tin Tan
This is a classic Mexican beach song that plainly states that life is better and love is stronger by the sea. You can’t argue with that!
Bonus track: Cuando calienta el sol – Luis Miguel
If by any chance Mexican singer Luis Miguel had stopped being on everyone’s mind, Netflix fixed that by making a mini-series about his life. “Cuando calienta el sol” is a light, fun, romantic song that will immediately transport you to a world of teenage love by the sea, enjoying a refreshing drink.
