I just got back from Playa del Carmen a few weeks ago! It was amazing. I was a bit dubious at first as I thought there wouldnt be much there as everyone else seems to go to Cabo or Cancun but it was great fun! Still quite a few restaurants, bars, clubs so theres a lot to do in the evening but the beach wasn't as busy as Cancun! I went on a daytrip to Isla Mujeres as well. I definitely need to invest in a house over there when I win the lottery!
