GET TO KNOW PLAYA DEL CARMEN
Located in the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen is in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean, a cosmopolitan destination that has preserved the Caribbean essence that has made it so popular. With spectacular beaches, an incredible gastronomic offer, nightly entertainment, fascinating natural and theme parks and mystical cenotes that are found in its surroundings.
Despite being one of the largest and fastest growing cities in the Mexican Caribbean, it is easy to get around on foot or by bicycle. The turquoise water, sunny skies and white sands make Playa del Carmen an ideal destination to enjoy the outdoors. You can practice water sports such as snorkeling, surfing and kitesurfing, or just take a break and relax in the sun.
Parallel to the beach is Playa del Carmen’s main avenue, Fifth Avenue, which is a 5-kilometer pedestrian street with small hotels, shopping malls, stores, art galleries, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. In addition to street performers and nightly entertainment.
La Quinta” -as the locals call it- you will find some hidden gems, such as Mayan vestiges and even a cenote! Although the dining options on La Quinta and its boutique hotels are vast, some of the most popular restaurants for locals (such as taquerias and seafood restaurants) are located on the surrounding streets.
One of the places you have to visit on “La Quinta” is Parque Fundadores, where you will find the Portal Maya, a huge sculpture that together with the sea in the background is the perfect place for a souvenir photo. This place is ideal to watch the sunrise and in the evenings enjoy the shows that are presented there, making it a meeting point for tourists and locals. Right in this park is where the ADO airport bus arrives.

MAMITAS: On 28th street the street that leads to mamitas has become a very busy place for tourists. Although as a tourist for a few days it can be fun, for people who want to stay longer it can be a bit annoying because of the noise and the people who come up singing after a few drinks on the beach. However, this area on Fifth Avenue has gained value thanks to its upscale restaurants.
