The Tropical Playground Of Playa Del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is a well-known beach resort town in Mexico, located in the popular Riviera Maya area. Those palm-lined beaches and coral reefs that impressed you on Instagram are the real deal in the tropical playground of Playa del Carmen, but maybe even more stunning in real life. All the shopping, nightlife, and luxuries of a tropical vacation are waiting for you in Playa del Carmen.

Sunseekers will adore Parque Fundadores near Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue Playa del Carmen). You can be on the beach soaking up the sun then into the main area for shopping, entertainment, and nightlife in moments.
