Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
