Just 45 minutes up the coast from the crowded and overgrown Cancun, Mexico, Playa Del Carmen is now the third-largest city in Quintana Roo, one of the top tourist destinations in Mexico. Enjoy the white sand beaches, turquoise azure waters, and the laid-back attitude, all things that you can definitely get used to! Visit scuba diving wonderlands and play catch with the fish, or discover the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, which is the second-biggest coral reef in the world. There is plenty to see and do in Playa Del Carmen, and we wouldn’t be surprised if you just want a comfy bed after an exhilarating day. Here are 10 beautiful Airbnb vacation rentals to give you a memorable stay in Playa Del Carmen.
