Playa del Carmen Beaches

For some, the idea of a relaxing vacation is spending time in an out-of-the-way spot. For others, it’s mingling in the crowds at a trendy beach. If you’re part of the latter, you should really take a look at the beaches at Playa del Carmen, with its restaurants and beachfront nightclubs, to book your next vacation spot.

There’s plenty of entertainment on Playa del Carmen’s beaches

You don’t have to spend all your time roasting under the sun. Without a doubt, you’re sure to find something, in either Central Playa or North Playa, the two main beaches in Playa del Carmen, that’s right up your alley—or beach. If you’re the sporty type, you can go jet-skiing or parasailing.

Playa del Carmen is protected by the island of Cozumel, and so its waters are mostly calm, making it the perfect spot to snorkel or scuba dive. Just remember to do so as part of one of the many guided tours.

And—as they say—once the day is done, the night is just beginning. Playa del Carmen’s famous 5th avenue, with its trendy nightclubs, is only a short distance away. Some are so close to the beach that they open right to the sand, especially in the more-trendy North Playa.

Playa del Carmen’s trendy beaches are filled with interesting people

Together, Central and North Playa stretch for two uninterrupted miles. As you can imagine, with plenty of visitors, a walk on them is anything but an isolating experience. There are those spending a lazy day on a deck chair and those practicing a beach sport, like volleyball. Others are dancing to live music, right on the sand. The conversations are a-plenty, and before the day is done, you’re sure to meet all kinds of new and interesting people from all over the world.

A diverse experience in only a couple of miles

The scenery is not the only thing that changes as you walk along the beaches of Playa del Carmen, but the experience as well. There are plenty of parties happening right on the beach. And, once you’re tired of dancing, just walk from North Playa along the beach to the less crowded Central Playa. There, you’re sure to find a calm restaurant to rest and cool down with a drink.
