From village to bustling city in just a few decades, there must be a damn good reason why Playa del Carmen attracts so many visitors. Located on Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula not far from crowded Cancún, scuba paradise Isla de Cozumel, the historical Tulum and the super famous Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá, means it’s a great place to make your base of operations.
Locals adoringly call it Playa – nothing more! Blessed with year-round mellow-to-hot temperatures, it’s the perfect place for digital nomads to hide from frosty places and to get your tan on. The town adapted to its visitor’s needs, and now offers decent internet speeds the many breezy cafés and awesome coworking spaces. Flipflops welcome.
There’s loads of activities in and near Playa del Carmen for anyone. Relax, be active, see some sights; it’s all fine. Just make sure to pack both your laptop and your swimsuit whenever you go out!
The Playa del Carmen guide is still in the making. We’ll update once we have a launch date!
