Learn Spanish in Mexico: Playa del Carmen

Guadalajara

Playa del Carmen is located in the southern tip of Mexico, in the state of Quintana Roo, only 50 minutes driving from Cancun. It has greatly developed from being a small fishing village over 10 years ago into becoming one of Mexico’s most important tourist destinations!

Despite its fast growth, Playa still keeps a charming and typical Mexican atmosphere. Throughout the city you can find many small family-run hotels and restaurants, though there are also world class businesses that will surely exceed your expectations!

Playa del Carmen is a great place for relaxation, though it’s nightlife is vibrant, especially along 5ta Avenida! On this pedestrian walkway you will find numerous restaurants, bars, hotels, and other recreational places of interest. Only 2 minutes away you will find the stunning white sand beaches of the Caribbean where you can do anything from swimming, relaxing in the sun, playing beach sports, and enjoying other water activities like snorkeling or scuba diving!

Another very important reason why the area is so popular is because the second largest coral reef in the world is nearby, offering avid divers the perfect conditions! Temperatures are comfortable and mild year round, which certainly makes Playa del Carmen the perfect place to combine a language course with a vacation!

But Playa del Carmen has a lot more to offer than just sun and endless beaches. You can also learn about the Mayan Heritage through a visit to the well preserved pyramids of Tulum, Coba or Chitchen-Itza, and the fascinating history of Mexico’s ancient past.

Playa and the Mayan Rivera surely has something to offer for everyone, from culture lovers to eco-tourists to adventurers, and of course, those seeking to learn Spanish while enjoying a premiere vacation!

Getting to Playa del Carmen is simple, and you can book a direct flight into the Cancun International airport. You can also arrive into Cozumel to reach Playa del Carmen, but be aware that the only way of getting to Playa del Carmen from Cozumel is by ferry, and the schedules are limited.
