Playa Del Carmen Retirement Profile

Labeled hip and European by its fans, Playa del Carmen has developed in the last three decades from a tiny village at the dock for the Cozumel ferry to a full-fledged beach resort complete with topless sunbathing and exciting clubs and restaurants. There are many types of lodgings here and on the sandy beaches stretching north and south of town, and lots of opportunities for touring and eco-adventures.

Snorkeling
Not the spot it used to be - the coral reefs right off the shoreline are dead. No coral = no fish.

Diving
Not the spot it used to be - the coral reefs right off the shoreline are dead. No coral = no fish.
