This was a gorgeous catholic church situated right on the main tourist road going through Playa Del Carmen. They were having a quiet service when we visited and my fiancee' donated and received a Rosary.

This nice little church is right on Fifth Avenue by the main square and seems to be always open and in use. It is very simple and attractive.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I've been to in my life. It is really small, non pretentious, simple and quiet. And the best part is that from the window behind the altar you can see the beautiful Caribbean Sea <3 Been there several times, always a pleasant time.

It was such a refreshing sight to the eyes to see a church with coconut trees on the background of the tabernacle. We arrived on Saturday night so it was nice to find a church with an English mass near the resort where we stayed at. It was a full house when we went and it was heartwarming.

Beautiful small church. It has a peaceful atmosphere that is felt right away once you step inside,a very special place indeed. You will love it. Decorated with lots of natural flowers it is a well- kept church. A lovely sight to remember, also a very intimate church to pray among locals and tourists for those you care as well.

It happened to be that we arrived to 5th Ave, and by this church, when the mass was about to start. The sun was almost down, and decided to stay. Lots of people were arriving, and a lot had to stay outside, but also taking part of the ceremony. The surprise was that when we got outside, the illumination of... More

We visit Playa del Carmen each year and always start off with a little prayer at Nuesta Senora del Carmen Catholic Church. This little church in the city's plaza on Quinta Avenida is a beautiful welcome sight. Catholic Mass is held nightly in Spanish at 7PM and on Sunday's in English at 10AM.
