Just as it happens with the winter holidays, Valentine’s Day has both people who dread it and people who can’t wait to make the most of it and celebrate in amazing, original ways. And if you think by original we mean covering your Valentine’s car with post-its, you’ve never heard about how Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the Caribbean.
But wait! Before all this talk about Valentine’s Day gets you down, fearing being hashtagged #foreveralone for life, or reaching out for the phone to call your ex, you should know there’s something special about the way we celebrate in the Caribbean: everyone gets to have a good time.
That’s why Playa del Carmen is the perfect place to celebrate in your own way, even if you’re on flying solo. Would you like to find out more about the options offered by this wonderful destination?
For those traveling with friends
In Mexico, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and friendship. That gives it a brand new twist if you’re spending it with your crew. Your friends know you better than anyone, and you know them better than anyone, so begin your night with a few drinks at the bar of your choosing, with either a light dinner or a feast. Dessert, because sugar is everywhere on V-day. Maybe chocolate, or an intriguing mixology drink with coffee, rose petals and strawberries? After all, you’re in Playa del Carmen to have fun.
The next stop could be a walk down Fifth Avenue, where you might run into another group of friends. Maybe you’ll all go to the beach together and throw together a little party.
It doesn’t take much: a couple of cellphones, the right attitude and the will to have fun.
For those traveling with their significant other
If this is your first time, you should know that Playa del Carmen is one of the most romantic destinations you could visit. The beach, the ocean, the weather… all that, with the extra help you can get from the concierge service some places offer, will definitely make for a perfect evening.
At places like Happy Address, everything’s ready for you to simply arrive and let us make your plan happen.
For those traveling solo
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying one’s own company. Don’t forget: it’s better to be alone than in bad company. But what could be better company than the turquoise-blue Caribbean, the white sand, one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world, exotic fauna and the freedom to go anywhere you want?
That’s right. Playa del Carmen is the perfect place to be on February 14, no matter who you arrive with or who you leave with. But if you’re looking for accommodation that will adapt to your needs instead of vice versa, you should explore Happy Address’s options.
