Playa del Carmen Travel Guide

Playa del Carmen

Located about an hour’s drive south of Cancún International Airport, Playa del Carmen is the next best thing after Cancún. With warm weather, beautiful white sand beaches, and a European flair, this quaint Caribbean seaside town in the Riviera Maya is the place to be.

This happening town was once quiet and relatively unknown, but it quickly became home to many Europeans whose influence is obvious in the shops, restaurants, and bars that align the popular Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue).

Its paradisiacal scenery is the perfect place to enjoy your favorite water activities like jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming with dolphins. The Riviera Maya also offers parasailing, horseback riding, jungle tours, and much more. Thousands of travelers visit the area for the tropical jungles of the Yucatán Peninsula with its native plants and animals, and for its oceans with its marine life, beautiful turquoise blue water and white sand beaches.
