Playa del Carmen Hotel, Playa Palms, is right in the middle of the Riviera Maya, one of Mexico’s most popular vacationlands, and has been around since 1937. This resort area sits on the coast of the Caribbean Sea, just South of the large city of Cancun. The tropical Caribbean destination is situated within the state of Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula. The Playa del Carmen Hotel is rapidly becoming a popular getaway with approximately 150,000 residents within city lines. This is now double what it was just a few years ago, making it the third-largest city in Quintana Roo. The rapid growth in population can likely be attributed to the ferry service that is offered to Cozumel, which allows people to see Playa and its breathtaking beaches on their routes to and from the city.
The Playa del Carmen Hotel sits on the coast of this tropical and overlooks the turquoise waters and white sand beaches. Because of the rise in traffic to the Playa del Carmen Hotel, the urban area is undergoing a massive development and even bringing chain businesses to the once small fishing community. 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. However, there is still plenty of undeveloped area.
The local inhabitants have worked hard 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 Hotel, 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.
