PLAYA DEL CARMEN
The heart of the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen provides an incredible combination of stunning fine-sand beaches, hotels that cater to all tastes, and the best restaurants and bars with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Come and discover it for yourself!
One of the most famous beaches in Mexico, Playa del Carmen is found just 37 miles from Cancún. A few decades ago it was only a tiny village inhabited by fishermen, and the main port for getting to Cozumel island; today it is a cosmopolitan paradise attracting thousands of foreigners from all over the world. In Playa del Carmen, formerly known as Xamán-Ha, two worlds live together in harmony. On the one hand, the small-town vibe of a fishing village; on the other, the cultural and social fusion that gives life to this fashionable hub, comprising design, architecture, and an eclectic culinary culture.
