Playa del Carmen
This resort town in Mexico is roughly thirty miles south of bustling Cancun and is also serviced by Cancun's International Airport. Playa del Carmen boasts a number of championship golf courses along with lively restaurants and bars.
Visitors often take advantage of excursions to the nearby Mayan ruins or perhaps ride a ferry to the island of Cozumel. Water lovers enjoy swimming with dolphins at Xcaret, a large park and recreational nature preserve. Playa del Carmen hotels are not the high-rise spectacles you'll find in other tourist spots. Instead, they're low-rise buildings that reflect the area's relaxed ambience.
