Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing

Customer Travel Tip: Eat and drink at places on the side streets rather than the main strip.

Liked: You go to Playa for the beach, or maybe for the nightlife if you're into tacky bars and chart music (which I am not!) There's no culture and it's overpriced, but for a few days of beach and chill out time it's great.

Disliked: It's a resort town, nothing like 'real' Mexico.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: If you dont wanna party, and you dont like overcrowded beaches, go somewhere else. But if you got time stay for a few nights, maybe go to Cozumel.

Liked: The city is right by the beach, so you can just waddle down to take a swim. Resturants are everywhere, but you need to go away from the main street to get the cheap food.

Disliked: ALOT of tourists (especially americans). And with that alot of tourist shops which makes it impossible to walk down the street without being offered to look in shops, get massage, buy drugs etc.

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: People who like a work out, try "The Gym"- they offer daily and weekly passes. Everything is brand new, you can join their courses (spinning, yoga, boxing etc.). Awesome breakfast at Karma Bagel (if you feel like something non-Mexican).

Liked: It is a tourist spot, but with a certain charme. The atmosphere is good and although it is very busy, you can enjoy yourself.

Disliked: Taxi drivers rip you off- most things are in walking distance, so think twice before you take a cab and definitely ask for the price in advance.

Customer Travel Tip: stay at the Yak... be prepared to party party party and cure the hangover with a trip to a cenote or the beach in front. you just cant go wrong in playa del carmen!

Liked: everything is central... the bars, beach, shops, nightlife, hostels, taxis, buses... evertyhgin! far better an experience for backpackers than cancun. playa del carmen also has a better nightlife scene. the beach is not as good as some in cancun but the ones nearby such as tulum or the cenotes easily make up for it.

Disliked: nope
