About Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is one of the most important cities in the Mexican / Caribbean area and forms part of the municipality of the State of Quintana Roo. The city is also one of the main tourist destinations in the whole of Mexico, being known as the "heart of the Mayan Riviera".

The City currently has about 150 thousand resident inhabitants, which increases very significantly in peak tourist periods. Unlike other destinations, Playa del Carmen has a relatively recent history, at least at national level. Evidence of this is that in 1996, its population was only only 10,000 inhabitants!

Thousands of tourists from around the world visit Playa del Carmen, and its surroundings, every month, in search of breath-taking beaches, (a natural environment bathed by the Caribbean Sea), the nightlife and to see the archaeological sites of Tulum and Chichen Itza.


Playa del Carmen has some of the best beaches in Mexico. Some of the best-known are Paamul Beach, Paradise Beach and Mamitas Beach Playa Tukan.

Also Playa del Carmen has other areas of beaches, such as those found in Akumal, a perfect place to relax or go diving. And there is Cozumel, about 45 minutes away by ferry, that has the second largest reef in the world!


Since the opening of the first bar in 1982, Playa del Carmen has not stopped growing and has established a great popularity. Some of the most visited and known establishments are Coco Bongo, Playacrawl or Beach Party although there are many others.


The natural surroundings of Playa del Carmen are one of the main attractions of the area, highlighting the more than 2000 cenotes (natural sink holes) that are sprinkled about the Yucatan peninsula and the Xcaret Park. This encourages tourists to the possibility of getting into the nature and culture of Playa del Carmen, and its surroundings.
