A few weeks ago my girlfriends and I went to Playa Del Carmen and stayed at The Thompson hotel. It was my first trip of the year and it was honestly so nice to escape the cold Dallas weather for warmer temps! The Thompson has two locations in Playa, the main house and beach house (just two blocks from each other).
We stayed at the main house and had the best time shooting outfits and relaxing for a few days. If you’re traveling to Playa Del Carmen and want to stay right on the beach I would recommend staying at their beach house. We chose the main house because we loved the rooftop pool and didn’t necessarily feel the need to be right on the beach during our stay. We did go to the beach house one day and hung out in their cozy cabanas and had lunch and cocktails.
If there’s one restaurant you need to try while in Playa it’s CATCH, which is on the rooftop of the Thompson main house. We ate there twice during our stay because it was that good. I recommend trying ALL the sushi rolls, brussel sprouts, truffle fries and chocolate cake!
Even though we were technically “on vacation” we shot a lot of new content during this trip and worked quite a bit. I think we only went out one night, which is pretty odd for our group. I do recommend venturing out and hitting up Mamita’s Beach Club party. We had a Friday funday there and it was a blast. There’s cabanas on the beach, a DJ, and great drinks..it’s basically a huge party that we couldn’t turn down.
I’ve included all the outfits I wore during the trip with sizing info. Be sure to scroll all the way down because there’s A LOT. I hope this post gives you some inspiration for your next vacation and if it doesn’t don’t worry because there’s a ton more coming your way!
