Playa del Carmen Vacations
From the low-rise buildings to the gentle surf, “laidback” is clearly the buzzword surrounding Playa del Carmen. Forty-five minutes away from Cancun, “Playa,” as the locals call it, provides a stark contrast and welcome foil to its high-glitz, high-energy neighbor for travelers looking for a slower-paced vacation. The former fishing village offers a number of championship golf courses, and its central location is ideal for day trips or excursions. Spend your days exploring the beaches and nature preserves, but be sure not to miss out on the nightlife. Although this beachside city has become one of the fastest growing areas in Mexico, Playa still maintains its coastal cool by mixing European chic with authentic Mexican culture in an effortlessly luxurious way.
