Playa del Carmen
The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline. In a town ideally located for wider explorations of the region, holidays in Playa del Carmen appeal to an ever-growing number of wealthy Europeans, who come here to take advantage of developed beaches and discover nearby archaeological sites. Near Cancun's international airport and other popular destinations like Coba, Tulum, and Cozumel, this vibrant resort town offers outstanding diving and snorkeling in waters filled with a stunning variety of corals, rays, turtles, and moray eels. Despite its popularity, the town manages to retain its laidback atmosphere and European lifestyle, making for relaxing Playa del Carmen vacations.
