Playa del Carmen, or simply “Playa,” as locals, regular visitors and ex-pats know it, is one of the most beautiful beach towns in the world. Located in the heart of Mexico’s Riviera Maya just south of Cancun on the Caribbean Sea, Playa’s name – which literally translates to mean “beach” – really says it all.
Here, the crystal clear turquoise waters and soft white sand beach mixes with the warm ocean breezes to create one of the most picturesque beach towns to be found anywhere on earth. In Playa, a variety of lively restaurants, bars, specialty shops and cafes can be found near the beachfront just waiting to be discovered by curious passersby.
The most popular street in Playa del Carmen is – arguably – 5th Avenue, or La Quinta Avenida, which is a pedestrian-only walkway that is lined with countless shops, boutiques and eateries. A variety of chic hotels are located within easy walking distance, as is the beach, and this is definitely the place to be after dark.
5th Avenue in Playa stretches for more than 30 blocks and also offers plenty of entertainment options, making this the ideal destination for those who plan to enjoy the town’s vibrant nightlife scene. In addition, the entire area is quite safe and well–lit after dark, and there are plenty of secure ATMs available that allow visitors to withdraw pesos directly from international bank accounts.
Finally, when planning a visit to La Quinta Avenida, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, bring sunscreen and allow plenty of time to explore. All of the taxi drivers in Playa will be very familiar with this area, so just ask your hotel concierge to call you a cab, or take a resort-sponsored shuttle. Fares are generally very reasonable, even if you are staying outside of the city proper.
