Introduction to Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen

Simply known as “Playa,” this Caribbean fishing village on the Mayan Riviera is Cancun’s laid-back neighbor. Despite a rapidly growing population of 60,000 and increased popularity as a tourist destination, the residents of “Playa” are committed to maintaining their city’s bohemian charm and relaxed pace. You’ll have the best of both worlds: a natural setting with all the restaurants and amenities a modern traveler could need.

Hop on a plane and come discover Playa del Carmen, where there’s tons to explore around. You can hop on the ferry to Cozumel for world-class scuba diving, explore an abundance of nearby Mayan ruins or head to Cancun for shopping and wild nightlife. Best of all are the city’s white sands, crystal clear Caribbean waters and lush tropical vegetation that will make up your day-to-day landscape.
