    I stayed at the Riu Yucatan, this hotel is far enough from playa to el Carmen (45 min by feet). It's nice to find a small shopping center near your hotel. You will find souvenirs, jewelry, currency exchange your euros cheaper than the hotel, drinks, drugs, etc...

    In the hotel zone of Playacar is a fun (small) shopping center. You can buy souvenirs there if you're not the city.

    Being hosted at the Riu Playacar opposite this tour, is where you can find typical things of the place and souvenirs. Found me it expensive compared with other nearby

    It's the only shopping center in Playacar that is conveniently located for the big named hotels in Playa del Carmen. This is where non- walkers or adventureless tourist go to do their souvenir shopping.

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.
