The Riviera Maya

Venturing away from El Taj, you'll find an endless array of European-style boutiques, world class restaurants, day spas, and romantic lounges, all within easy walking distance. In fact, the the most popular evening activity in Playa del Carmen is strolling the pedestrian-only Avenida Quinta, enjoying the scintillating sights, sounds, and flavors of this cosmopolitan destination.

Playa del Carmen is also the ideal headquarters from which to strike out in search of adventure. It is the undisputed heart of the Riviera Maya, the coastline that stretches from Cancun to Tulum and inland to many of the Yucatan’s ancient treasures. Easy day trips from Playa del Carmen include Isla Mujeres, Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Akumal, Tulum, Cozumel, premier dive sites, championship golf courses, crystal-clear cenotes, and more, all reachable via ferry or a modern, four-lane divided highway.
