    It's a very beautiful beach which is also a Cenote. This beach serves many chic hotels as "Beach" is but a public and accessible to all. It is a very beautiful Bay - white sand - and clear water. You may be all over the place. The Cenote water is cooler than the sea water. Here, many Mexicans to the Baden cavort.

    Small family beach north of PDC. It is easily reached by taxi from the center of PDC. The water is super clean and amazing blue. The beach is especially popular with Mexican families. There is a food truck which offers some dishes / drinks etc and who also has sun beds with umbrellas etc. (otherwise need all this, because there's absolutely nothing in the vicinity). Beach, very quiet and very nice to spend the day in the quiet and flee the beaches crowded and dirty of PDC.

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.
