Playa Del Carmen Overview

Situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Playa Del Carmen is affectionally referred to as ‘Playa’ by the locals. Once just a small fishing town, Playa has grown into a bustling, yet charming town which is now one of the region’s top destinations for shopping, dining and nightlife.

Beach bum bliss

Set on the east side of Mexico’s sun soaked Caribbean coastline, Playa Del Carmen has some of the most pristine beaches in Mexico, with white sands and turquoise blue waters that lap softly against the shores. Walk the coastline north or south and find your desired slice of paradise. The resort also provides a top choice of water sports, including jet-skiing and banana boat rides.

Shop ‘til you drop

Fifth Avenue, also known as ‘Quinta Avenida’ by the locals, is the Mexican version of the stylish New York City neighbourhood, complete with back-to-back bars, restaurants, shops and art galleries. By night, the area kicks up a notch and transforms itself into a hub of nightlife activity with a mix of bars and nightclubs.

Eco-park paradise

A once sacred Mayan site, Xcaret has been converted into an eco-archaeological complex. It’s a theme park with a twist, with more than 50 fully interactive activities to experience incorporating all the aspects that make Mexico what it is: the culture, the beauty and the wildlife. Come sundown the park comes alive with spectacular shows featuring Mayan rituals, music, dancing, acrobatics and stories.

Mayan wonders

No visit to the Riviera Maya would be complete without a trip to the Mayan ruins in Yucatan Peninsula. You can marvel at one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza, or visit one of the most breathtaking settings of any city past or present at the Mayan ruins of Tulum.

 

Things to do in Playa Del Carmen

 

On the Beach in Playa Del Carmen

All year round Playa Del Carmen is a sunlit playground, with its beaches easy to access. No matter where you are in the Playa, the beach is never too far away making it easy to sunbathe, swim and shop. Snorkelling and diving are popular activities in Playa Del Carmen. Head to Cozumel Island, take the plunge and explore the limestone caves and cenotes (natural sinkholes) filled with multi-coloured marine life.

Top Tip:

Take a walk north or south along the never-ending coastline and find your own slice of paradise.

Eat and drink in Playa Del Carmen

There’s something to suit everyone’s taste buds in Playa Del Carmen with Mexican, Yucatan and international cuisine served. Mexican cuisine is known for its varied flavours and spices which blend the influences of the old and new world. Grab some Mexican street food from a local vendor or sample an authentic Yucatan dish such as Poc Chuc, a pork dish marinated in sour orange and Mayan spices.

Top Tip:

Most locals don’t dine on Fifth Avenue, for a more authentic Mexican dining experience head to the side streets.

Playa Del Carmen Nightlife

All crowds can enjoy the unbeatable nightlife scene in Playa Del Carmen, with something to entertain every age and taste. Most of the nightlife action happens on Fifth Avenue, where you can sip cocktails or rack up the Tequila shots in one of the livelier bars. When the sun goes down many of the restaurants transform into nightclubs once the dinner hour has passed. Down at the beach, the streets are lined with bars where you can relax or dance the night way as the warm sands turn into a dance floor, with the beats of reggae to electronic filling the air.

Top Tip:

If you’re a night owl who wants to party until the early hours, most of the clubs in Playa are open until 6am.

Shopping in Playa Del Carmen

Fifth Avenue is a shopping avenue of over 20 blocks, with everything from designer shops and boutiques to flea-market type stalls selling handiworks and trinkets. The Quinta Alegria malls offers a premium shopping experience surrounded by the splendour of Playa del Carmen.

Top Tip:

Haggle at the flea-market stalls, you never know you might pick up a bargain or two!

Things to see in Playa Del Carmen

Xcaret Ecological Park offers an unforgettable experience where you can journey through the traditions and nature of Mexico. Take a snorkelling tour, enjoy a traditional Fiesta Charra or swim freely alongside nurse sharks. With so much to offer it may be difficult to fit it all into one day!  

Take a trip beyond Playa Del Carmen and explore the Mayan history of Tulum, around a 45 minute drive away. Tulum is a picturesque village perched on a cliff side and is considered one of the most beautiful sites in the area. From the castle take in the breathtaking views of the coastline.

Top Tip:

If you’re taking a trip outside of Playa Del Carmen, book with an official tour as you don’t want to pay over the odds for a day trip!

We Recommend

 

La Coronela

For an authentic Mexican dining experience, La Coronela is a hidden treasure set on the back streets around Fifth Avenue.

Blue Parrot

After dark head to the white sands of Playa and go to the Blue Parrot where you can listen to hits of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s as well as Caribbean rhythms and reggae classics. Dance under the stars and ride a swing at the beach bar for an unforgettable night.
