Running parallel to the pristine Caribbean waters is the World famous Quinta Avenida, or 5th Avenue, which now stretches for almost 5 miles along the beach front and offers hundreds of restaurants, nightclubs and endless shopping. Although one can still find plenty of local cuisine and small artisan shops offering everything from hammocks to sombreros, Playa del Carmen is transforming rapidly into a high-end, luxury destination with high priced, exotic restaurants with World famous chefs and luxury shopping destinations from Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, H&M, Apple and Zara just to mention a few.

Of course, the primary reason that Playa del Carmen has become such a sought after tourist destination are the World renowned beaches and Caribbean waters that have for so long been a dream for divers, snorkelers, and water fans alike. In the heart of town you can find numerous beach clubs offering full food and drink services throughout the day. Whether you prefer the young and daring beach clubs of Mamitas and Kool Beach or something a bit more mellow such as WahWah Beach or Wickies Club, BRIC Vacation Rentals offers private condo rentals in all of these locations directly on the beach.

If you prefer the more secluded and isolated beach destinations for a day of relaxation and fun, you can just walk either North or South of town a bit and often times find yourself alone on beaches that appear to be untouched and undiscovered. If your looking for a day trip to the beach there are also many options available such as Maroma Beach, Tulum and Punta Venado to name a few. Be sure to check with your BRIC Vacation Rentals Service Ambassador and they will guide you to the beach of your choice and help you create an everlasting memory.
