Why Peggy Hammeken chose Playa del Carmen
We purchased our first condo in Las Palmas (Palma Xiat listing 199185). We love the complex, the neighborhood, laid back lifestyle and the beautiful Caribbean. We always wanted another unit in the complex - so were excited when Palma Cocoyol became available in 2010!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks in November. The condo is exactly as described with all the amenities you will need. The location is perfect, 1 block from the main drag of 5th Avenue where all the bars, shops, and restaurants are located, and 3 blocks from the beach.
The condo comes with coupons for Mamita's Beach Club, where you can trade them for either an umbrella or a chaise chair. Considering we rolled out usually pretty late to the beach sometimes there were no chairs available, so just bring the towels provided at the condo and plant yourself anywhere on the beach. Or just walk up to the rooftop pool, and hang out there. You will most likely have it to yourself.
As for nightlife, there seems to be plenty of it. The big party is down by 1st Ave and Calle 12. The crowd is a bit younger but definitely something to check out, and the music seems to be more dance and techno. If that is not your style, just plant yourself in any one of the hundreds of bars along 5th Ave. get yourself some happy hour drinks (usually until 6PM) and people watch. For sport lovers check out Tequila Barrel showing sports on tons of big screen TVs (and ladies get a free shot for dancing on the bar :-)).
There is a big variety of restaurants, however there seems to be a fair amount of turnover and some restaurants that we found on the web and wanted to check out were closed. Here is a list of some we liked:
Calle 26 between 1st & 5th Avenue
Right down the street from the condo, great breakfast and lunch,
Calle 26th btw.5th Ave, and 10th Ave.
This was one of our favorite places, and it is right next to the condo. Excellent Spanish food, tapas, etc, served in a family atmosphere, at great prices. Each day they also have Comida Corrida, a set menu with three courses and drink for 75 pesos.
Babe's Noodle & Bar
Calle 10, btw 5th Ave. and 10th Ave.
also at 5th Ave, btw Calle 28 and Calle 30.
Thai inspired excellent food, very reasonable prices
5th Avenue between Calles 28 and 30
Excellent middle-eastern food.
El Asador de Manolo
The corner of 5th Avenue and Calle 32
This Argentinian grill serves up a myriad of grilled meats.
10nth Ave. btw Calle 8 and Calle 10
Authentic cheap tacos
La Kalaka: Italian
Calle 4 btw 15nth and 20nth Ave
Excellent Italian, romantic setting, off the beat
