Why Go Now -Because it is THE place to go. The Riveria Maya (including Playa del Carmen, Mayakoba & ending 40 miles down the road at the bohemian ultra-cool Tulum) is paradise. Think turquoise water, open air restaurants, Mayan ruins, jungle, holistic spas & lots of tequila makes this truly heaven. Fly Virgin America to experience their new “airline dating” system! Send a drink or meal to any passenger via their digital seat map. Chances are you won’t be deplaning alone. Takes dating to an all new “high.”
Does being married or single influence Where2Stay? Location, cost, size & child friendly all play a part. Do you want your hotel, hip & modern with sexy dark lounges, a DJ spinning “singles” on the roof? Or do you prefer a quiet, elegant & romantic hotel? Sometimes you might want to “marry” the two which is the hardest to find. You will see an M (married), S (Single), or an MS (married/single) next to each hotel
Amansala - Think echo chic. The ultimate yoga retreat to detox, d-stress, meditate & recharge during the day, cocktails & dancing at night (or sleep, your choice.) Rustic rooms (girls, leave hairdryers at home, minimal electricity), organic food, spa services & miles of beach. A perfect girlfriend’s getaway. (S,M,MS)
Be Tulum – A boutique hotel w/ private Jacuzzis and pools. Meandering gardens, a cocktail lounge overlooking the ocean. Quietly super cool. (S,SM,M)
Hotel Mezzanine – New, modern w/large minimalistic rooms, Thai restaurant and martini bar. Visit Thursday night for Havana night. Ocean views. (S,SM,M)
Banyan Tree Mayakoba – Free standing villas, w/all amenities (named one of the top resorts in Mexico.) For all you men, golf at nearby El Camaleon Golf Course. Have a “drifting dinner” for two at their Ixchel Restaurant where a personal chef prepares your meal floating on the water. (S,SM,M)
Royal Hideaway Playacar – A member of Leading Hotels of the World this all inclusive resort is for adults only. The perk? Within walking distance of Quinta Avenida (5th Ave) the pedestrian only street in downtown Playa del Carmen (M)
In downtown Playa del Carmen try La Casa del Agua, Alux (dining in a cave, very romantic) and Il Pescatore. In Tulum prepare to wait at Hartwood (#1 restaurant,) don’t miss dining at El Tabano, Mateos & Posada Margarita. Have cocktails at Casa del Jaguar, Luna Maya & Tres Estrellas. Lunch at Ziggys & dance at La Zebra on the beach
Yoga, meditate, visit the Mayan ruins of Coba & Chichen Itza, swim in Cenotes (Mexican underground rivers), yoga again, bike ride, tacos, lay on the beach, did I mention do yoga?
In Tulum don’t miss Coqui Coqui Perfumes for unique fragrances (think tobacco) Josa for cool casual dresses & Shalom for great costume jewelry. Stroll down Fifth Ave (in Maya)
Where2Play – Sausalito Spotlight
Walk, run or better yet hire TideLine SF water taxi service (how cool to arrive by boat, ask for Capt. Taylor) to the newly reopened Trident Restaurant in Sausalito. Known for its positive energy, musician hangout, the best water views & great food. The Trident is back in full force w/a fabulous menu crafted by chef James Montejano in the kitchen. Supporting local farmers, serving sustainable produce & seafood, a full bar, outside fireplace, deck and live music on weekends it’s the Wear Girls new hangout! Reserve now to watch the Americas Cup.

Whether in the city or on the beach we are at peace!
