Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Find Playa del Carmen hotels in an area most suitable for your trip. Downtown is the most popular place to stay to be within walking distance of both beach and nightlife. Stay at One Playa del Carmen or Paradisus Playa del Carmen to be close to the beach. The beach in this area is not as spacious and is more crowded than the northern and southern beaches but offers great nightlife with many bars and clubs. If you’re looking for a calmer and more family-friendly area to stay, there are cheap hotels in Playa del Carmen’s southern region of the Riviera Maya. This area between Mayakoba and Riviera Maya has shallower water and gentler waves, which might be ideal for families traveling with children. The northern area has the biggest waves and the most favourable conditions for water sports.

The park is a popular attraction for families, thanks in part to its fun playground and plethora of fruit stands. This is also an ideal place to go to watch the sunset. One of the most popular beaches in the area is Punta Esmeralda, near Bucerias. This is a calmer beach with shallow water that’s perfect for kids. You’ll also discover more space here, allowing you to better spread out on the soft white sand. Find cheap hotels in Playa del Carmen’s Punta Esmeralda for a family-friendly stay.
