playa del carmen - Mexico Tropical® travel agency



The ‘heart’ of Riviera Maya, a 50 minute drive from Cancun’s Airport.

Founded just a few years ago, Playa del Carmen has been Latin America’s city with the most rapid growth for various years in a row now. This place is for the ones looking for cool and popular places to hang, week-long nightlife & some good old wander-and-shop at ‘Quinta Avenida’.


Playa is convenient if you’re planning on going out and visiting other places around: Cenotes, Tulum, ruins, parks & many other attractions are within a driving range of 20 - 50 minutes away. Featuring lots of options for world famous gastronomy, turquoise beaches & annual festivals, there is no doubt why this small roadside town is one of Mexico’s most visited beach destination.

Better to travel:

+ Low season: From February to late May, or September to late November*

+ For festivals / social travels:  Very High season Holidays ( Spring break, Summer, Christmas/New Year)

+ Sunny days and/or rain showers (both are great experiences)

+A different pace in life, a more relaxed and down to earth vibe throughout the city

+ Endless gastronomic options.

What we love:

Like we said, Playa is conveniently located, which makes it pretty easy to explore around & get back to ‘the city’ during the same day.


Playa also has great scuba diving, freediving & other adventure venues close by.

Suitable for:

+ Birthday Party
+ Weddings
+ Corporate Events
+ Anniversary
+ Workshops
+ Bachelor / Bachelorette
+ Group Trip
+ Honey Moon
+ Family trip


+ Bring cash money at all times.

+ Street vendors (Quinta Avenida) can be really noisy and annoying, we recommend avoiding conversations with them.

+ Avoid spending much time at the beach at night (unless your hotel is beach side), there are limited lights & although there are police officers strolling, it could still not be completely safe.
