One of the fastest growing vacation destinations is Playa del Carmen. Mexico. While Cancun and Cozumel have been the stars of the Caribbean in the past, Playa del Carmen vacations are quickly taking control as a top spot in travel to the Mayan Riviera. A visually stunning beach of pristine white sand stretches as far as the eye can see and is bordered by crystalline turquoise water that is warm year round. The tropical landscapes are serene and so unlike anything else that you can experience anywhere else in the world.
This once sleepy fishing town was an ancient Mayan village in days gone by but has developed into a prime location for travelers who want to live the life of the islands if only for a short period of time. The tropical breezes and awe inspiring views have enticed vacationers to this special spot on the Mexican coast in droves in recent years. There are many Playa del Carmen Mexico hotels to choose from, they are spacious and are decorated with tropical foliage and reflect the rich history of the area. Most of the resorts are located right on the beach and provide a spectacular view from private balconies that overlook the water.
Once you have taken in the breathtaking scenery you will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of activities that a Playa del Carmen vacation provides. Scuba diving and fishing expeditions are offered on a daily basis along the sparkling coastline as well as snorkeling. The truly adventurous can even swim with the dolphins that are abundant in the area; there are not many vacation spots that can make that claim. Sightseeing trips along that run up and down the coast of the Mayan Riviera not only allow you to view the natural marine life and vegetation in amazingly crystal clear water but also make periodic stops at neighboring communities to shop and indulge in beach buffet lunches. Playa Del Carmen vacations allow access to coral reefs that are vast and definitely a must see feature to scuba divers who can witness the marine life that occupies these immense living organisms.
Playa Del Carmen rentals offer holiday specials that are available as well as slashed rates on packages during the off season. You can pick and choose length of stay, size of suite and bonus features that allows you to customize your trip to your specifications and budget. These packages allow you to live and play Caribbean style while sampling the local cuisine as well as international fare at one of the many restaurants or open air cafes that line the streets of Playa del Carmen. Quinta (5th) Avenue is the main thoroughfare in town and is restricted to pedestrian traffic and also provides ample shopping opportunity in the gift shops and designer clothing outlets.
Come see what all the fuss is about in the Caribbean and let the friendly and caring locals provide you a vacation experience that will make you wish you could stay forever. A Playa del Carmen Mexico hotel is waiting to welcome you into a memory that will last a lifetime.
