The coastal town of Playa del Carmen is popular for its beaches and nightlife. Stay here to enjoy the natural beauty of ancient ruins, lagoons, and mangroves, as well as the party life that the region has become known for; however, don’t forget to stop at these three spots.
The first spot of the day starts at Parque de Los Amantes or Lovers’ Park, where lovers hang out. The name of this place came about because there is a statue dedicated to two lovers who are intertwined in an embrace. If you’re lucky, like we were, you’ll see couples getting their photos taken here.
The second stop of the day is the beach for some snorkeling and swimming; however, make sure that you go early since Playa del Carmen gets crowded during the day with swimmers and jet-ski operators, which can be annoying to people like us who want peace and quiet when going into the water.
Our last spot is lunch at Punta Morena or Point, which has great views of the beach. This place is a great place to end the day with a view of the stunning coastline and try some delicious Mexican food.
