Top 5 Winter Destinations to Visit in 2013 Series: Featuring Playa del Carmen
Originally a small fishing town, Playa del Carmen is one of the fastest growing and exciting towns in the Caribbean. An international mix of fun loving travelers come here to party, enjoy the pristine beaches and just generally immerse themselves in the tropical splendor of it all. “Playa” as it’s known to the locals, is in the middle of the Riviera Maya in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico’s Caribbean vacationland.
Playa del Carmen is one of the most booming cities in Mexico, and the number and quality of businesses has increased to keep pace with its growing popularity. The local community has attempted to retain Playa del Carmen’s reputation and charm as a quaint fishing village and artists’ colony, to retain a contrast between itself and the metropolitan Cancun located just 45 minutes to the north. However there’s no denying the world class shopping and top rated restaurants which can be found along Playa del Carmen’s stylish “Quinta Avenida” (5th Avenue) pedestrian promenade and district. 5th Avenue’s many high-end shops, bars and restaurants are the place to see and be seen in the tourist zone, located just one block off the beach and adjacent to the “Zocalo” (main square) in central Playa del Carmen.

Many of Playa’s tourists include thousands of backpackers from around the world, who pass through Playa while touring Mexico and the surrounding region, especially the nearby and world-famous Tulum ruins, one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites. The city has also completed several ambitious urban spaces designed to provide a safe environment for families to enjoy outdoor activities, including skate parks, outdoor fitness gyms, tennis and basketball courts, volleyball court and play zones specifically for children.
