Playa del Carmen Warnings and Dangers: 45 reviews and 18 photos
We always travel to Mexico in December which is outside the peak hurricane season of September and October but many Caribbean vacations have been ruined by those opting to roll the dice and travel during hurricane season. We were in Playa about a month after Wilma hit in 2005 and they were feverishly replacing palm trees and trying to get the beaches back in Playa, Cancun was still a mess. But that was much better than being there when the hurricane hit, people were stranded at airports and obviously vacations were ruined.
While there in 2008, we noticed these large beached whale looking sand bags placed in the water, presumably to prevent beach erosion and hurricane damage. While not the most attractive thing to see when gazing out at the ocean, it seems to be working in this area to keep a nice large beach.
