Welcome to the party! "Playa" is one of Latin America's fastest-growing communities, with a population of more than 135,000 and an international flavor lent by the Europeans, Canadians, and estadounidenses who have moved here over the last two decades. The eminently walkable downtown, full of lively bars, restaurants, beach clubs, shops, and hotels is one of the few places on the Riviera Maya where you can have a car-free vacation. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
