The Elements Beach Condo Vacation Rental - Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Comforts of Home with Hotel Service on the Mayan Riviera

Activities in Playa del Carmen

Welcome to Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

Located just 45 minutes south of Cancun Airport, this little Caribbean beach town is the Mayan Riviera’s best kept secret. There's a good reason for that - Playa is a fantastic place to spend your vacation, hang out, or live. The town is spread along the beach with strict zoning which prevents any buildings more than 4 stories high, so wherever you go, you will feel the closeness to the ocean. The main street is called "La Quinta Avenida", or 5th Avenue. Sometimes it's just called La Quinta. It is a pedestrian walkway packed with shops, cafes, and restaurants, and serves as a common point of reference. Avenues, "avenida" in Spanish, run parallel to the beach. They are given numbers in increments of 5, 5th Ave, 10th Ave, etc. The exceptions are Avenida Juarez to the south, Avenida Constituyentes in the middle, and Avenida CTM in the north. Streets, "calles", are perpendicular to the coast and they have even numbers north of Avenue Juarez and odd numbers to the south.

Playa del Carmen has something for everyone. Whether you're into lying around the beach, water sports, spas, golf, Mayan culture, shopping, or nature, you will find an activity to suit your tastes.
