    I couldnt believe my eyes last night when I laid my eyes on this massive operation...but it appears the Mexican govt dropped serious BANK rolls on a a project to give playa back its beaches that the last series of hurricanes have taken away.

    It is discussed and photos added here in this local Playa del Carmen forum thread....

    WOW....if it stays like this, there will be some brides, especially those in Playacar Fase 1 and 2 getting a serious serious face lift with 60+ feet of beach added. This is major.

    Here is a youtube video of this: YouTube - Playa del Carmen Beach Reclamation - 01-17-10


    And read about the locals and other travelers posting pics and chatting it up here. Playa/Playacar Beach Restoration - Playa del Carmen, Mexico forum


    As much as I want to be optimistic, I think mother takes what she wants...and I fear, in no time, this beach will be by by.

    BUT FOR NOW, yeay :)

    sorry i don't have any of my own photos to post... I just noticed it last night on my bike ride.

      sorry for the duplicate post. BDWF was literally stalling today on my browser. I've been noticing sloower loads recently and sometimes, timeouts. Please erase the other thread.


      the new beach rocks!
