Playa del Carmen

Theme Parks · Zipline · Landmarks
The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline. In a town ideally located for wider explorations of the region, holidays in Playa del Carmen appeal to an ever-growing number of wealthy Europeans, who come here to take advantage of developed beaches and discover nearby archaeological sites. Near Cancun's international airport and other popular destinations like Coba, Tulum, and Cozumel, this vibrant resort town offers outstanding diving and snorkeling in waters filled with a stunning variety of corals, rays, turtles, and moray eels. Despite its popularity, the town manages to retain its laidback atmosphere and European lifestyle, making for relaxing Playa del Carmen vacations. Plan your holiday in Playa del Carmen and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Mexico road trip planner.

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.
