Planning a beach holiday in Mexico? You may want to consider these three resorts stays in Playa del Carmen.
Its that time of the year to start planning the beach holiday.. we love going to the beach in Summer or Winter when the weather gets a little too hot or cold here in Texas. Mexico is always a fun and easy destination for us. Having been to Cancun a few times before, we were looking into Playa del Carmen for our next flight. Just a short 45-minute drive from Cancun International airport Playa del Carmen has a relaxed, yet cosmopolitan feel, with a variety of hotels, shops, and restaurants ranging from casual to upscale. It is still small enough to explore on foot. European-style sunbathing is common on beaches. Playa is a popular jumping-off point for day trips to Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Tulum, and other peninsula attractions, and a passenger ferry makes frequent runs to Cozumel.

Here are 3 great resorts in Playa del Carmen
Rosewood Mayakoba near Playa del Carmen
Located in a special compound near Playa del Carmen – 40 miles south of Cancun, the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort has 18 Deluxe Overwater Suites perched above its mangrove lagoon. Each of these suites is nearly 1,000 square feet and comes with a heated plunge pool and a wide array of modern luxury amenities. Definitely the closest thing to the overwater bungalows in the Caribbean, this resort also has oceanview rooms and other luxury suites, and it’s one of the highest-rated in all of Mexico. Better still, the location is less than an hour away from the Cancun Airport, so it’s far more convenient to reach than any of the other resorts on the list.
