Hotels In Playa del Carmen are tropical Caribbean destinations located in the state of Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula. Founded in 1937, the area is right in the middle of the Riviera Maya, a tourism district that runs parallel to the coast of the Caribbean Sea. This resort city sits just South of Cancun and its Hotels In Playa del Carmen are rapidly becoming a popular getaway with approximately 150,000 residents. This is now double what it was just a few years ago, making it the third-largest city in Quintana Roo, after Cancun and Chetumal. This rapid growth can likely be attributed to the fact that many travelers have discovered that Playa has the same great sandy beaches and gentle surf without the high prices of Cozumel and without all the traffic of Cancun
The Hotels In Playa del Carmen overlook the turquoise waters, white sand beaches and coral reefs of the area. However, if you are searching for more action, there is a two-mile strip of local shops at the center of town known as Fifth Avenue, or “Avenida Quinta”. Because of the rise in traffic to the Hotels In Playa del Carmen, the urban area is undergoing a massive development and even bringing chain businesses to the once small fishing community. This is a positive and negative to the local inhabitants, but one that is inevitable.
The natives have worked hard, however, to maintain the area’s charm and to prevent it from becoming a metropolitan like the city of Cancun. A city ordinance prohibits the Hotels In Playa del Carmen and all buildings, from exceeding four stories in height. Regardless of the height of the buildings, the residents will continue to bring the relaxed Mexican-Caribbean culture they are known for to the area.
