It began to grow as a tourist destination when ferry service egan between cozumel and Playa del Carmen. Today, Playaas it is commonly referred tois enter of the Riviera Maya. Passenger ferries, cruise ships and buses bring thousands of people a day through this once-sleepy-village. The local community and government have attempted to retain Playa's reputation and charm as a small fishing village and artists' colony. Judge for yourself whether they have been successful.
If you want to be in an area where there's some action, you'll find a variety of nightlife, wide selection of restaurants, shopping water sports and beckoning beaches. This is NOT your spot if you want a quiet get-away.
• Puerto Aventuras (map), about 10 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, is an upscale planned community with golf course, tennis courts, a number of restaurants and shops and its focal point: the picturesque marina. This is a charming retreat with some of the best beaches we've seen along the coast.
• Akumal, South Akumal and Jade Beach (map) Akumal is an small-town beach area about 60 miles south of Cancun; it is 10 minutes south of Puerto Aventuras. Akumal means "place of the turltes" in the Mayan language. Environmentalist groups are active in protecting the sea turtles that can be found in Akumal. During the nesting season from April to October, turtles can be seen at night laying eggs on the beach, or swimming in the bay during the day. The eggs hatch between June and November which coincides with hurricane season. Founded in 1958 by Pablo Bush Romero, a Mexican businessman, writer, scuba diver, historian and archaelogist, much of Akumal is still owned by the Bush/Wolfe family. This secluded has grown from a tiny village to an area of condos, villas nestled along the bays from Half Moon Bay to the north to South Akumal and Jade Beach to the south, yet still retains its quiet charm. Restaurants, small grocery stores are scattered throughout the area. Akumal offers life at a slower pace, a laid-back casual atmosphere. Its popularity has grown and properties are in high demand, booking up to a year in advance.
• Soliman Bay and Tankah (map) areas offer a more remote, off-the-beaten track location with small beach bungalow options as well as luxury villas. If you like peace and quiet and a get-away-from-it all vacation, this would be it! Yet, you're still not far from Tulum, Akumal and the rest of the world.
