Is this a good plan

3 fun, middle-aged American pals want to get away for 6 nights and came across this property:

Riviera Maya Suites

Avenue 34 Norte s/n entre 5ta Avenida y 1era Avenida,, 77710 Playa del Carmen

The reviews on TA are great but as we have never been to this part of Mexico before, we're wondering if it will be 'a good fit'. We definitely want to relax and enjoy la playa and take in some local culture. We're not huge drinkers but we don't mind una cerveza and we like nightime entertainment (some music, perhaps?).

Is this area of Playa del Carmen lively enough. Is there enough to walk to or take a short taxi ride to? (We'd rather not drive: we're on vacation).

Thoughts? Open to all suggestions but our budget is somewhat limited. 6 nights for $1700 USD for a 3-bedroom suite feels about right.

Thanks, everyone.

You might check out Aventura Mexicana. AI, middle of town, 2 blocks from beach, oasis from the noise of the beach & 5th Ave., some of the best food & drinks in Playa. For all 3 it should be less then your max. $
