  1. We just moved to Playa Del Carmen and live near this park. We love taking our kids here and it is a nice hidden treasure since there are not a lot of parks in Playa. We also saw on your site the one in Playacar. We will be checking that out soon.

  2. This is our 4th winter in Playa with our little ones (2.5 and 5) and the first time that we have been to this park. It is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms are super cute and clean. We had a great cup of coffee and the most delicious piece of carrot cake. We went to check out the Saturday market and were there early. There were many vendors with a great selection of things. The playground is nice, but like most others in Mexico, could do with some maintenance. We also found a cute little used book store across the road from the main entrance that has lots of English books as well as many in other languages (This may be useful to post for people as we have struggled over the years to find English books to read and even ended up in Puerto Morelos for them as we heard this was one of the few places)
    This was a great find for us (park and book store) and we will be back. Thanks
