Our Personal

Relation to 

Playa - Mexico

Reflecting on the year 2017, an experienced European engineer who was no stranger to frequent business travels and relocations stumbled upon the enchanting allure of this region and the town of "Playa" in the Riviera Maya.


Much like the Mayans did centuries ago when they settled in the Riviera Maya, this European individual metaphorically planted his roots in the soil of Playa del Carmen, adopting the place as his new home.


Navigating the myriad challenges that accompany international relocation, particularly the intricate bureaucratic processes and unique local intricacies associated with various aspects of daily life, became an integral part of this journey.


After years of immersing in both the splendor and trials that life in Playa offers, the European engineer embraced integration within the local community, harmoniously coexisting with fellow immigrants while respectfully honoring the surrounding nature and native culture. This harmonious balance has given rise to a serene and tranquil way of life.


From these experiences, "comp@laya" emerged as a platform aimed at sharing knowledge, experiences, and providing assistance to those seeking to make Playa their temporary or long-term haven.

"comp@laya" is an innovative term formed by fusing Spanish words with specific meanings that collectively encapsulate a meaningful concept. It amalgamates three key elements: "compa," signifying a close friend; "playa," which succinctly represents the renowned Playa del Carmen; and "laya," symbolizing a spade, embodying the notion of building and settling in the picturesque Caribbean Paradise of Mexico.
