    To swim in these cenoder is crazy though! the water is colder than the sea part so a wetsuit can be a good idea, although I did it fine in bikini. It is fresh and cool in Cenoden which is really nice, but the mosquitoes were really lose those ugly! all in all a wonderful experience.

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.
