PLAYA DEL CARMEN

If you prefer a beachtown atmosphere to the long hotel strip of Cancún, this is the ideal choice on the Mayan Riviera. A tiny fishing village with sand streets in the 1980s, and a backpackers’ hangout in the early 1990s, Playa has blossomed into a fun town with an energetic beach scene and nightlife.
