Budget accommodation in Playa del Carmen with kids
After staying in the five star luxery resort in Akumal we were back on our regular budget staying in a hostel “Casa Freud” on the main street in Playa del Carmen. The rooms were simple, but there was a little pool, and it was great to give our baby boy a dip in the pool during the hottest hours of the day. It gets really hot in Yucatan. So if you travel with smaller kids, stay somewhere with a pool or beach, so the kids can have a dip during midday.

Playa del Carmen is not all about luxery hotels on the beach like Cancun. In the centre there is a really nice pedestrian street “5th Avenue” that runs parallel with the water having souvenir shops, restaurants and small hotels and hostels. At night 5th Avenue is crowded as people go out to eat and to have drinks. Playa del Carmen has a vibrant nightlife with lots of nightclubs. Bringing a 8 months boy, we did not explore the nightlife at all.
We used Playa del Carmen as a port to go to the island of Cozumel.Share on Facebook
