Easy to earn brownie points in Playa!

We all know women LOVE to receive flowers! But we also all know how expensive it can be to buy flowers in Canada and the US especially if it's a special occasion like Mother's Day or Valentine's  Day - which is a HUGE celebration in Mexico, by the way!

Well if you're in Playa del Carmen and want to earn brownie points without breaking the bank just check out any of the local florists shops in town. I'm always amazed at the beautiful arrangements that they sell for a FRACTION of the price I would pay at home.

Here is a simple example of what I mean - this beautiful bouquet was a gift from my husband on Valentine's Day - now what makes this even more special is that he walked over to a small grocer near our condo and then hand picked the flowers that he wanted to create the bouquet with. How special is that! As you can see there are exotic flowers in there such as the bird of paradise, gladiolas and large yellow lilies. Now here's the BEST part - remember he bought this on Valentine's Day which as we all know is the most expensive time to be buying flowers - well not so in Playa del Carmen - this bouquet cost 52 Peso - that's around $4 Canadian. 

So guys if you want to impress your ladies don't be afraid of going into the local florists in Playa.
