Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Playa del Carmen has been rated the number one destination in Mexico and 15th in the world by Trip Advisor travelers.
According to the 2018 Traveler’s Choice, the seaside city in the heart of Riviera Maya has been rated as the number one destination in the country.
“Playa del Carmen is one of the top diving destinations in the world, thanks to vibrant sea life and dazzling underwater caverns. On dry land, Playa is a hipper and more modern version of the fishing village it once was. Spend some quality time on the golf course or wave hello to the playful spider monkeys at The Jungle Place sanctuary. Explore the ancient ruins of the Coba Mayan Village, or get in some quality people-watching as you shop and stroll along 5th Avenue.”
