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, family resorts, 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, activities to try, and even non-touristy things to do in Playa Del Carmen, and we wouldn’t be surprised if you just want a comfy bed after an exhilarating day. Here are 15 best Airbnbs in Playa Del Carmen for your guide.
Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, the Bohemian-style studio is bathed in natural light throughout the day, making it seem bright and airy. The small LCD flat-screen TV is perfectly placed right in front of the plush queen-size bed so that you can keep yourself entertained as you lay in bed. Adjacent to the sleeping area is a spotlessly clean kitchen which is furnished with all the cooking utensils you will need to prepare a meal. Tuck into your food at the wooden dining table placed next to the marble countertop. The bathroom is beautifully furnished with Bohemian ceramic tiles and a rustic metal sink. A shower and some clean towels are readily at your disposal. There is a gorgeous roof terrace that is shared with the other apartment that the host is renting out. It is a perfect place to enjoy the afternoon sun as you look out onto the crystal clear waters of the beach. Although the temptation to stay put in the studio is strong, you won’t want to miss out on the amazing attractions close by. Besides the beach which is popular for snorkeling, there are restaurants and theme parks nearby that are easily accessible by bus or by taxi. You can also choose to explore the area on a bike since the host offers bike rental on-site!

This romantic honeymoon resort is best suited for young couples, as it is only walking distance away from restaurants, clubs, and the beach. There is also an array of tours and activities to choose from. The spacious and airy living / kitchen area includes polished marble floors and a very large comfortable built-in sofa for indoor chilling. Who says 3 is a crowd? Third wheels, this loft bed, located on top of the living room, is cozy and comforting. It’s a good reminder that riding solo ain’t as bad as it seems. After an exhausting day at the beach or intense explorations of Mayan ruins, head up to the rooftop terrace to enjoy the wonderful star show. The soothing and bubbling hot water of the hot tub sure does look tempting after a long and tiring day.
