Recent Playa del Carmen vacation rental reviews

Modern design, comfortable bed, 1 1/2 baths, large space, fast wi-fi.
Christa B. | Jan 2023
great place, great rooftop view and pool. Walkable to the beach and tons of restaurants and shops. There is parking close by via paid street parking or garages. The only minor issues I had were a little trouble with the door codes when checking in. There is no washer in the unit or apartment complex, and if I'm being really nit-picky, they don't let you put the chairs in the pool like they are shown in the photos. Overall, great apartment! would definitely return
John J. | Jan 2023
It was clean, neat, beautifully decorated. We enjoyed being able to fix breakfast in my room, sitting on the patio with the breeze, meeting people that were so kind. Loved the view from the roof, the hot tub, Coco Beach, and 5th Avenue. I can't wait to come back.

Playa del Carmen Activities

Playa means beach, and Playa del Carmen doesn't disappoint with its great beaches! Playacar is the best spot in town. The north side can teem with tourists, so head to the more secluded and relaxing south side to avoid the crowds. If you're looking for a bit of adventure, look no further than Cenote Chaak Tun. These caves offer a place to admire stalactites and stalagmites as well as a chance to snorkel. Bring the kids, as families are welcome!

Playa del Carmen is also a shopper's paradise. The main shopping thoroughfare is Quinta Avenida, and here you'll find high-end retailers such as Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior as well as more budget-conscious boutiques such as Zara and H&M. The street is also home to myriad restaurants and bars, including the Hard Rock Cafe and Senor Frogs.

The town is a diving mecca thanks to the coral reefs offshore. Scores of scuba diving outfitters can be found in the city center. Instructors are on hand to lead even novices on dives of up to 30 feet. If you have more time - and aren't claustrophobic - get certified. Then the whole undersea world of turtles, fish, and pristine caverns will be open to you.

Playa del Carmen Excursions

Coba is arguably the most celebrated attraction in the area. Just two hours from Playa, here you'll find a well-preserved Mayan city, rediscovered 120 years ago. Stroll through the ruins and admire the tropical hardwood, carved stelae, and vegetation, then climb the pyramid to the top. Excavations revealed that the 80-square-mile site was an important Mayan trading post and commercial hub.

Nestled in the jungle between Playa del Carmen and Tulum lies The Jungle Place Spider Monkey Conservancy. Owners Heidi and Joel rescue malnourished, ill, and abused spider monkeys, often victims of the illegal pet trade. Book an appointment, learn about the species, and make a donation to their care.

However you choose to spend your time in this bustling city, the sun and the sea are never too far away from any of our Playa del Carmen vacation rentals!
