Playa del Carmen is an idyllic beach town located on Mexico’s alluring Yucatan Peninsula, known for its palm-lined, white-sand beaches and turquoise Caribbean Sea. Full of captivating attractions, you can explore crystal-clear cenotes, colorful coral reefs and ancient Mayan ruins. Swim with sea turtles at Akumal Beach, take an exciting boat trip to Cozumel or browse shops, beach bars and restaurants along Fifth Avenue. 

Less touristy than its neighbor Cancún, Playa del Carmen is a great spot for travelers looking for something different than the all-inclusive resort scene. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice on luxury accommodation perks when you book with Airbnb, as you’ll find plenty of lavish beachfront condos and villas suited for A-list celebrities. Splurge and book a villa all to yourself or stay with a group of your friends and enjoy luxury on-site amenities like chef-prepared meals, spa services, sparkling oceanfront pools and fully-equipped kitchens.
