Playa del Carmen is the best destination in the Mexican Caribbean for combining a beach vacation with some downtown city action. Not only does Playa’s Quinta Avenida pulse with nightlife, great shopping, and fine dining, it’s only a short walk from some of the region’s poshest resorts (not to mention the ferry across to Cozumel island, a whole other destination to explore).

When you’re looking for a Mexican beach getaway that also embraces local life and culture away from the beach, consider one of these top Playa del Carmen resorts.

Rosewood Mayakoba It will take a little longer to get to Playa del Carmen from the exclusive Mayakoba enclave, but then again, you may not want to leave. The Rosewood Mayakoba is placed between lagoons, mangrove forests and the sea, with accommodations ranging from luxury suites to private villas. The property includes multiple dining options and a top spa offering wellness rituals that extend over multiple days. But it’s the service, pervasive and impeccable, that has luxury travelers coming back again and again.
