What was once a fishing village has now become one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Mexico. South of Cancun and across the Caribbean Sea from the island of Cozumel is the beautiful city of Playa del Carmen. Vacation rentals and villas dot the peaceful landscape, along with amazing resorts and high-quality hotels. Visitors have come to appreciate the calm, serene atmosphere while enjoying its turquoise oceans and white sandy beaches. The city has a more laid-back atmosphere than the chaotically fun Cancun. Whether you’re looking for a romantic, family-friendly, or relaxing getaway, this may be the perfect spot for your vacation.
Often, the vacation rentals Playa del Carmen visitors most appreciate are right on the beach or bordering the epicenter of activity on the huge, pedestrian-friendly Fifth Avenue, or Quinta Avenida. While the city boasts a calm atmosphere, you will find that Fifth Avenue is the lively home to shops, brand-name stores, bars, art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. There are several world-famous spas as well, so a visitor can soothe their senses in total luxury.
Just because the city has a very “chilled out” attitude doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of fun things to do while staying at your vacation rental. Playa del Carmen is a famous spot for horseback riding on the beach, swimming with dolphins, and catching huge fish. One of the most popular activities is snorkeling along the Mesoamerican Reef or visiting any of the many hidden coves in the area, such as the Chaak Tun Caverns. History-lovers might want to take a small trip to one of the nearby ancient Maya sites on the Yucatan Peninsula; Playa del Carmen is only a few hours away from Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba.
As a subtropical city in the Riviera Maya, the area has near-constant perfect weather, with an average temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit (or 27 degrees Celsius). If you’ve visited before, you probably know how beautiful the weather can be. If you’re a returning visitor, check out our furnished houses or one of our many other vacation rentals in Playa del Carmen to have the most comfortable stay possible.
When deciding on where to go in Mexico on your vacation, there are several things to consider: Do you want to enjoy bright, Caribbean beaches? Do you want to soak up the fascinating culture of the Yucatan and learn more about the ancient Maya? Do you want to relax while still having fun things like shopping available to you? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then you should choose to stay in a Playa del Carmen vacation rental.
