AIRBNB PLAYA DEL CARMEN, THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING:
↠ It’s really hot in Playa del Carmen so make sure to choose an Airbnb with a pool. It isn’t always an expensive addition nor are they hard to find but they make all the difference in the sweltering heat.
↠ The closer you are to the beach the closer you are to the hub of everything. That includes all the bars and nightlife. If you are looking for a more relaxing stay and partying just isn’t your thing, make sure to book an Airbnb a little out of the centre.

These look like amazing options. Which is better Playa or Tulum?
They really are. It depends on what you’re looking for. Playa is a little more touristy with a very commercial kind of vibe while Tulum is more boho and spiritual. Both are great vacation options though.
Love these options. They look so modern and boho chic.
