PLAYA DEL CARMEN
Located 45 minutes south of Canun's airport is the beach town of Playa del Carmen, the fastest growing destination in the state of Quintana Roo. Just a few years ago, this former fishing hamlet served merely as a springboard for visitors taking the ferry to Cozumel. But as more and more ferry-bound travelers lingered to enjoy its Caribbean beaches and rustic charms, the town came into its own as a resort destination.
"Playa", as locals call it, is growing by leaps and bounds as an ever greater number of travelers visit each year from the United States and Canada, as Europe. Its main strip, Quinta Avenida, of Fifth Avenue, is flanked by numerous sidewalk restaurants and stores.
Yucatan specialties are available at Yaxche, at Calle 8, just off Quinta Avenida. The Glass Bar (on Quinta Avenida, between 12th and 14th streets) offers Italian dishes and one of the best wine cellars to grace the shores of the Riviera Maya. Nighlife abounds at the rooftop Sky Lounge of In Fashion, a boutique hotel, and at Reina Roja's retina-searing neon red street-level bar, as well as at Deseo, Blue Parrot, and La Bodeguita del Medio.
