Playa del Carmen Mexico.

Every year, after the summer season has ended, the Rapaport family make their way to Playa del Carmen Mexico, where the weather is always sunny, the bars are always full, and everyone is partying like crazy.

One of the crown jewels of the Mayan Riviera, Playa del Carmen is also host to the annual BPM Festival, one of the biggest EDM festivals in the world and a highlight of the family’s annual trek south.

“My Mexican paradise in Playa del Carmen,” says Mickey. “No work. Beach only.”

“We like it,” adds Nancy. “We like the vibe and that’s what we look for when we’re on vacation.”


For Mick, ‘Playa’ is what Grand Bend used to be… bar after bar after bar and everyone just partying like crazy.

“It’s like Grand Bend on steroids,” says Mick.


“We just go, oh, I’m home,” says Nancy. “And sometime we wish Playa del Carmen was our home.”
