Playa del Carmen Beach Hotels 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, one of Mexico’s most popular vacationlands. This resort city sits just South of Cancun, on the coast of the Caribbean Sea, and their Playa del Carmen Beach Hotels 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. This rapid growth can likely be attributed to the ferry service that is offered to Cozumel, which allowed people to see Playa and its spectacular beaches on their routes to and from the city.
The coast of this tropical paradise is scattered with Playa del Carmen Beach Hotels overlooking the turquoise waters and white sand beaches. However, at the center of town you can find the city’s main street of Fifth Avenue, or “Avenida Quinta”, which offers two miles of shops, restaurants, bars and more. Because of the rise in traffic to the Playa del Carmen Beach Hotels, the urban area is undergoing a massive development and even bringing chain businesses to the once small fishing community.
The local inhabitants 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 buildings, including Playa del Carmen Beach Hotels, from exceeding four stories in height. No matter how high the buildings though, the residents will continue to bring the relaxed Latin culture they are known for to the area.
