Cozumel is one of the most exotic destinations for a Mexico escape. It is home to some of the best deep-sea fishing, the best dive sites, and historic hikes through ancient ruins. Although exciting, it can be very expensive to stay right on the island. For people looking to book a vacation with their friends, partners, or their family, you can get the best deals at Playa del Carmen hotels.
There are lots of reasons to consider Playa del Carmen as opposed to Cozumel. Most Cozumel hotels are located in a busy area and you’ll be competing with a lot of other tourists and travelers. Because the area is so popular, you’ll also get caught up in all the tourist traps and crowds. You’ll also be spending a lot of money on everything from food to attractions.
When you’re looking to spend quality time with friends or family, Playa del Carmen is the more inexpensive option, but it will also give you a more intimate experience with the local culture. It’s a small town so you can walk just about anywhere. You’ll be more in touch with local cuisine and culture. It also gives you more of a Caribbean island experience. You’ll experience the same sights and sounds with less commotion. You’ll see the same beautiful beaches and sunsets, but the whole experience will be more personal.
And if you really want to experience Cozumel, all you have to do is hop a ferry ride over. The trip is easy to get to and fairly short in duration, but it’s wise to buy tickets in advance and arrive early from your hotels. Playa del Carmen is growing in popularity, so if you’re interested, check it out soon!
