    As it is typical when you go to the playa del Carmen pass and take a fotillo there that we did. We are a lot of people (too much) by which in the end took a few photos and other side... What if that constantly make spectacles of dances and traditional songs that is all very well to spend a little time.

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.
