katie and bradfor willcox
Katie and Bradford Willcox visited Playa Del Carmen for the first time in 2006 and fell in love with the energy of this charming Mexican city. Over the past decade, Katie and Bradford have been living in Playa Del Carmen for several months per year and considered it to be their home. As certified open water and cave scuba divers, Katie and Bradford have explored the underworld of the cenote cave and caverns and well as the open waters of the Caribbean sea. They have explored all the beautiful Mayan ruins in the Yucatan and found climbing Coba to be the most energetic and extraordinary experience of them all. Katie and Bradford will guide you to some of their favorite local beaches, restaurants, and shops that you won't want to miss. Using their relationships within the city of Playa Del Carmen, Katie and Bradford can guarantee you will have an experience to remember.
