  • From my point of view it is worth to be in the evenings, the voladores of papantla at different times, Mayan dances with an incredible natural setting, is the step forced the ferry that goes to Cozumel, so super recommended, also free of charge.

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
