This is kind of last minute, but my spouse and I are thinking of going to Playa Del Carmen for a week at Xmas. We've been to Cancun and Cozumel but would like to try PDC. Never been there and it looks like there are many all-inclusives, which we've never stayed at so maybe the more well informed could help us narrow it down.
The # 1 priority is a beachfront property on a GREAT beach!
We typically spend the whole day on the beach and hopefully this trip will be no different. Lounge, read, stroll, and frolic in crystal clear H2O on a beautiful stretch of sand. Hopefully a quiet stretch without too many loud kids yelling Marco Polo or over-served partiers hellbent on getting their money's worth at the bar.
Not looking for nightlife just a relaxing stay at a fantastic beach, preferably at a property with decent food so we'd never have to leave. We generally prefer smaller properties that are clean, comfortable and not rundown. Don't expect to be pampered, just friendly service. An oceanview room with a balcony would be ideal.
Can anyone provide a few choices to help us narrow it down? Remember fantastic beach!!
Are all beachfront resorts in PDC AI and if not do you recommend AI anyway?
What's the best way to get to PDC from the airport in Cancun; do resorts provide transportation? How long is the drive?
I imagine Xmas is high season; any tips on getting good deals in the area? Any favored websites?
Thank you in advance!!
