Playa del Carmen, located between Cancun and Tulum in Mexico, was originally a small Mexican fishing village. Nowadays it is a city very much alive! Miles of unspoiled white sandy beaches, cenotes and a nice blend of a crystal-clear Caribbean ocean and jungle make Playa del Carmen a great destination for holiday visitors from all over the world. The great thing about Playa del Carmen is that the town has grown parallel to the beach. So wherever you go, you will be close to the ocean. The main street is called 5th Avenue (Quinta Avenida) and it is a pedestrian walkway with many shops, bars and restaurants. From 5 star restaurants or a simple fish taco, the city is characterized by variety and diversity. Whether you like going out until 6am or waking up at 6am to enjoy the sunrise, you will always find something you enjoy to do in Playa del Carmen on your next vacation.
