Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Casa Vida Dulce is located just five minutes from Playa del Carmen and less than 30 miles south of Cancun and adjacent to Cozumel. The location ensures a beach with low waves and calm waters. The entire Riviera Maya caters to American and European travelers, so English is a major secondary language. You do not need to speak Spanish to safely and confidently travel throughout the area. Tourism is extremely important to the Yucatan Peninsula, and the people are very friendly and willing to assist the first time visitor.
Playa del Carmen is the unofficial capital of the Riviera Maya and is such a unique town. It offers so much for first time visitors and it keeps visitors coming back time and again. The downtown area is defined by Avenida Quinta or Fifth Avenue, a pedestrian friendly avenue that boasts over 200 ethnically diverse restaurants, unique Mayan handcrafts, and sophisticated shopping boutiques.
A little further afield are the world-renowned Mayan ruins of Tulum and Coba, both breathtaking and fascinating in their uniqueness. The Riviera Maya also boasts some of the most incredible cenotes or underground caves that will captivate adventure seekers. In addition, the area is home to many eco-parks such as X-Caret, Xplor and Xel-ha. Each has something for everyone, young and old alike!
