The unique harmony of Playa del Carmen is generated by its village like atmosphere and the smiling face of its people. Although "Playa" as it is called by locals and frequent visitors, is becoming a very popular international destination, its original charm and atmosphere remain untouched by townspeople tranquil and hassle free lifestyle. Playa del Carmen offers the kind of service and hospitality provincial Mexico is so well-known for you'll find “mi casa es su casa” the prevailing attitude, whether you book a rustic beach front cabaña or a 5 star hotel in Playacar surrounded by lush, tropical gardens.

The town offers both and if you're concerned about your meals, don't be. Playa's restaurants are as varied as its hotels and offer traditional Mexican food, fresh seafood, pastas and other continental cuisine. Playa del Carmen's pedestrian street Quinta avenida or "Fifth Avenue" is well known for its sidewalk cafes, each with its own unique atmosphere and charm. In the evening you can sip tropical cocktails at a waterfront bar, dance the night away to live music at Captain Tutix, or join a beach party bonfire.

There are diving facilities both inland and in the sea, the deep waters separating it from Cozumel are ideal for sport fishing, the jungle invites you to explore its lush, magical world while trips to nearby archaeological sites are extremely gratifying.

The sun goes down in Playa and everybody gets ready for a relaxing walk at "La Quinta Avenida" the walking strip where you'll find anything from Cuban cigars stores to enticing mexican handcraft shops to international cuisine restaurants for a romantic candle light dinner.

If you are looking for more action, the evening offers a number of options such as places to dance and shake off the insomnia caused by Caribbean nights, popular fiestas on the beaches and lively bars.
