Playacar Beach: A Secluded Corner Right in Playa del Carmen

Imagine having the best of both worlds: the crowds, the shopping and the nightlife of downtown Playa del Carmen, and a quiet, secluded place where to relax and recharge your batteries. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, with its numerous upscale hotels and houses for rent, all in a gated, safe community, that’s exactly what you can find in Playacar.

Where is Playacar Beach?

Playacar’s location is one of its biggest advantages, for sure. It is a gated community south of Playa del Carmen. This means you’re within walking distance or a short drive from the famous spot’s downtown. Go eat, shop, meet new people and retire to your quiet little corner to rest in the afternoon. Want to avoid the crowds altogether? The walks on the beach here are real marathons, as the whole of the Playacar community has a beachfront. Just remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Hotels are not the only place to stay

Playacar is not only a resort area, but a residential one, too. If you walk around the place, you’re sure to come across all kinds of houses, from lovely beach bungalows to real mansions! Want to stay in one? You can! Some of them are for rent. So, if you’d like to stay in this lovely place, but are not too keen on sharing your space with the big hotel crowds, you’re sure to find a house to enjoy for a few days by yourself.

You don’t have to leave Playacar

Being close to downtown Playa del Carmen doesn’t mean you have to spend all your time there. There are plenty of restaurants inside Playacar itself. You’re sure to find your favorite kind of food, for comfort-eating, or try out something new if you’re feeling a little bit more gastronomically adventurous. There’s Mexican food, of course, but also Italian, and even Indian.
