Located across from Cozumel along the sunny Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen has become one of Mexico’s most popular vacation spots. This is partly thanks to the area’s vibrant sea life and underwater caves called cenotes—features that help make it “one of the top dive destinations in the world,” according to TripAdvisor. Guests at Reef Coco Beach have premier access to the splendor under the surface—there’s a full-service marina onsite that organizes diving trips. Additionally, you can use complimentary watersport equipment such as snorkeling gear and kayaks to explore the waters right in front of the hotel.
Reef Coco Beach is also well-positioned for visitors looking to experience Playa del Carmen’s nightlife. Laid-back bars and international restaurants line 5th Avenue less than a mile away, and nearby shops are stocked with handmade crafts and Cuban cigars. As guests of the resort, you’ll receive preferred access at several nightclubs in town.
Back at the hotel, you can choose from an array of complimentary activities. Head to the swimming pool for an introductory scuba diving lesson, or ride a boogie board in the turquoise sea. Those looking to relax can sip frozen cocktails at the swim-up bar or get a treatment at the onsite spa. Lounging beside the curvy, freeform pool and sunbathing on the beach are attractive options as well.
As part of the all-inclusive package, you can dine for free at any of the resort’s four restaurants, which serve everything from casual breakfast buffets to romantic Italian dinners. The Miramar features wraparound glass windows with views of Cozumel. You can enjoy a more intimate dining experience at Sabor Latino, which limits seating to 20. After dinner, the party shifts to an 18-and-over nightclub where you can enjoy drinks and music before wandering back to your garden-view room, which features a private balcony with a hammock.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico: Trendy Beach Area and Diving Destination
Just across the sea from the island of Cozumel, Playa del Carmen has been called “the hippest city in all of the Yucatán Peninsula” by Lonely Planet. The laid-back beach bars and cafés have a way of converting vacationers into expats, but Playa’s most compelling draw might be its cenotes—cavernous sinkholes filled with turquoise pools. The water in the cenotes is crystal clear, particularly at the lily-pad-dotted Xlacah cenote, where you can snorkel among schools of colorful fish.
To the south, you’ll find preserved ruins of pre-Columbian cities. Tulum’s crumbling temples are situated above a dramatic ocean bluff, and Coba’s enormous pyramid rises between two lagoons. For a fun day trip, hop aboard the ferry to Cozumel, which docks at the pier east of Calle 1. There are about a dozen dive shops on Cozumel, and they offer trips offshore to the reefs that Jacques Cousteau declared some of the world’s most beautiful.
