Here’s the thing about resort towns in Mexico: it is very easy to spend money unnecessarily. In Playa del Carmen, stores like Victoria’s Secret and Forever 21 decorate the main street. From a Rolex to a year’s supply of Viagra, everything is available for the eager buyer.
What’s not immediately obvious is that almost everything is available for a discount price. (Unless you’re shopping for a Rolex watch, of course). Do your research if you don’t want to get taken for a ride.
