About The Yak

Located in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, just off the main Avenida, The Yak is the perfect place for weary travellers looking for a place to hang their hat. With a bar offering the best prices on drinks in the neighbourhood, people plan to stay for a day and end up staying for weeks at this home away from home on one of Mexico's best beaches.

With two communal kitchens, bright airy dorms, a rooftop terrace, private rooms and apartments with fully equipped kitchenettes - there is an option to suit every budget.

For travellers looking for something to do in Playa, The Yak hosts a changing schedule of activities, ranging from Mojito and Guacamole lessons, trips to nearby Cenotes and beaches, pool parties, movie nights and much more.

Our mentality has always been "There are no strangers here, only friends we haven't met". Whether it's meeting someone new at the bar or heading with a group to nearby Playa Akumal on a tour, you're guaranteed to leave The Yak with new friends and fond memories.
