Real estate Playa del Carmen – Pizza!

For those who own real estate in Playa del Carmen or other areas of the Riviera Maya, spending the year or months at a time in your condo or house, you might come to a point where you crave different types of food, a change from the typical Mexican cuisine. A good pizza can’t be beat and this month I participated in the Playa Times pizza contest to find the best pizza in Playa del Carmen. A group of 20 judged pizzas from three different restaurants in town, in search of the best pizza pie.

The Playa Times is a local English newspaper, with free copies available at select locations around town or you can read online, a great way to keep up with what is going on in the area during your time here or when you are away.
