Playa Del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen is located on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in the heart of the Riviera Maya. Playa Del Carmen has an arty, village like atmosphere that makes for a peaceful and relaxed retreat surrounded by beaches of fine white sand. There is a wide range of watersports available as well as diving and snorkelling. The village of Playa Del Carmen has mini-markets and convenience stores for everyday requirements, and the streets from the beach are lined with stalls and shops, selling local arts and crafts. In the evenings, stroll along the streets browsing the souvenir shops or enjoy the entertainment provided by the larger hotels. Music spills from the many restaurants and bars and there are several late night discos and bars for the night owls.

Excursions around Playa Del Carmen are varied. First time visitors to the area will be enthralled by the ancient Mayan Ruins at Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba. The rapidly expanding resort of Playacar lies to the southwest of Playa Del Carmen with spacious beaches of soft white sand. Shopping visits are available to Cancun for a wider selection of goods and a regular ferry service runs from Playa Del Carmen to the island of Cozumel, a favourite for diving and snorkelling. There are also excursions to nearby golf courses and eco-centres offering a range of activities from snorkelling, diving and swimming with dolphins to land based activities such as cycling, kayaking, horse riding and hiking. Playa Del Carmen is an area of natural beauty and character offering a quiet and relaxed holiday destination.
