A BLEND OF PROVINCIAL CHARM AND COSMOPOLITAN VIBE

Playa del Carmen is a town that, despite becoming a major tourist destination, has managed to preserve its provincial essence.

In the times of the Mayans, it was known as Xaman-há and was particularly important as the starting point for traveling to Cozumel Island, known back then as Kuzamil. On the island, the goddess Ixchel, the goddess of fertility, was worshiped. It was a visit that one had to make at least once in a lifetime, and it was a mystical experience that involved fasting for several days, praying, and taking steam baths to purify the body

Playa del Carmen offers 15 kilometers of beautiful Caribbean coast and is the heart of the Riviera Maya. It's located approximately one hour north of Cancun and south of Tulum.

It boasts soft sandy beaches, dozens of beach clubs, and its iconic pedestrian street, Fifth Avenue (Quinta Avenida), where you can enjoy a fun day on the Mexican Caribbean shores.

A fun way to explore Playa del Carmen is by bike. It has a 4 km bike lane running along 10th Avenue, as well as two trails that connect two commercial corridors: Centro Maya and Plaza Las Américas. There's also another bike path that connects Playacar, Xcaret, and Xplor, running parallel to the highway.

In terms of accommodation, Playa del Carmen offers something for everyone. There are small budget hostels and boutique hotels, some with ocean views, and others just a few blocks from the beach.
