We got a parking ticket yesterday. Nowhere on it does it tell us how much the ticket is for.
We weren't too fussed about it at first. What would happen if we didn't pay it? Not much we figured. Then we noticed that they took our license plate off the car!!!
We had no idea where to go, so we went back to Playa del Carmen where we got the ticket and asked a police officer. He didn't speak a word of English, but we thought we understood where to go. He got us in the general area, and after asking a few more people and going to a few wrong buildings (all in a one block area), we finally found the gated building that housed our license plate.
If you ever have to pay a parking ticket in Playa del Carmen, this is the right building.
I love their parking garage!
We were told this was the line up to get into....WRONG.
This room here, the one that had no line up at all, is the one to go into.
After photocopying your drivers license or passport, and attaching the copy to the ticket, they send you to this wicket.
They take a lot of license plates! I guess not everyone comes to pick them up.
After all that, they laughed, giggled actually, gave us back the plate and sent us on our way. NO CHARGE!!!! lol We were concerned about how expensive a Mexican ticket would be. I think this is a good lesson to never pay off a Mexican police officer instead of taking a ticket.
On the way back to the campground we stopped in Peurto Aventuras' tourist section. We were told we could get in free if we told them we just wanted to go to a restaurant, so we tried it, and it worked like a charm.
Lizard lips. :)
