As the crown jewel of the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen is an irresistible location to visit and is one of the fastest growing cities in Mexico. Renowned for it’s silky soft beaches, you’ll find yourself relaxed and sun-kissed in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
All the water adventures you can imagine are popular here including snorkeling, swimming, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing. You can even swim with sharks and get close to stingrays at Xcaret, the city’s outdoor eco-park.
A unique feature of Playa, and part of it’s claim to fame, is 5th Avenue (or La Quinta Avenida). This main thoroughfare, a little over a mile long, runs parallel with the beaches and is a pedestrian only street. La Quinta allows for random strolling, no worries. You’ll find great shopping from high end to flea market type, fantastic restaurants and a big variety of nightspots all along the strip. Pub to club, there’s many to choose from.
