The Top Neighborhoods
Centro has shops, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs that envelop you. Bonus: everything is walkable! La Quinta 5th Ave is lined with vendors, tour shops, performers, and tequila tasting rooms. Stretching up and down the beach from Ave. Constituyentes to Calle 1 (1st Street), if you’re looking for fun and great food, Centro is the spot.
THE NORTH END
Following the beach north from Centro, you’ll enter the North End after passing Ave. Constituyentes. This residential, Airbnb and condo area is quieter but still provides easy walking access to Centro. If you’re renting a vacation home for a large group, this is a popular area as it’s on the rise.
Playacar is a large-scale residential development south of Centro perfect for those looking for a more laid back vibe. Discover great beaches, a few hotels and restaurants, and a relaxed vibe. Golf courses, parks, and shopping centers define these “suburbs” of Playa del Carmen.
