The Best City In Mexico For Single Moms
Hello Mommas! Are you searching for the best city in Mexico for single moms? I was traveling in Mexico when I stumbled upon a paradise for single moms. Okay. Okay. Truthfully, I only spent significant time in two cities in Mexico so this is a matter of opinion. After spending 5 weeks in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, I am here to tell you why Playa Del Carmen, Mexico is the best city in Mexico for single moms.
Homeschooling/ Unschooling Community
There is a huge homeschooling/ unschooling community. This is so unbelievably important for us single mommas who crave a sense of community. The homeschooling and unschooling community here is so helpful. I reached out to the community on Facebook prior to coming to Playa Del Carmen. They welcomed me with open arms. Even if your kids are too young for thoughts of schooling, this is still a great resource. You can join the Facebook group here. We meet weekly at Parque La Ceiba where kids can take various classes outdoors and play to their heart’s content. We did a YouTube video on this beautiful eco-friendly park. You can check it out by clicking here. At Parque La Ceiba, mommas can sit around and chat while drinking a delicious Cafe D’ Olla. Here, you can also meet other single mommas in the community.

There are so many family activities in Playa Del Carmen and surrounding areas. They just opened a new trampoline park, there are two movie theatres with English movies, there are two malls. Various playgrounds, the beach, water parks, pools. Seriously, you will have so much to do with your kiddos it is unbelievable. I am leaving next week so I will have to make another future trip to Playa to still only do a fraction of things that were on my list.
Cost Of Living
Although Playa is one of the more expensive cities in Mexico, it is still Mexico which means it is still more affordable than a majority of US Cities. Yep! I said it. Let’s face it. Being a single momma can be tough. Financially, it can be really tough. I know it. I understand it and that is why I am all for single mommas moving to Mexico. If you can make moving abroad a possibility, I highly suggest Mexico. If you need some inspiration join the Facebook group Single Moms In Mexico.

Playa Del Carmen is a kick-ass location for travel and who in the heck doesn’t love to travel? Cancun with its major airport is only 50 minutes away from Playa Del Carmen. As a major hub, you can fly pretty cheaply to the US, other parts of Mexico, and Central and South America. Did you hear that? You can fly for cheap from Cancun. Yay! Plus, there are tons of places within driving distance from Playa. There is the beautiful Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Morelos and many other places that should be on your list. Did you know that one of the new 7 wonders of the world, Chichen Itza, is only about two hours away? You can also take a quick ferry ride from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel. It is super easy. We did it and had an absolute blast. From Cancun, you can take a quick ferry ride to Isla Mujeres which is home to Playa Norte and rated one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
