About Playa del Carmen

Juanita Rodriguez Juanita Rodriguez 04-02-2019

Originally known as the small fishing village south of the resort town of Cancun Mexico, Playa del Carmen has seen a tremendous amount of growth over the last 10 years and has now become the chic beach destination in the Caribbean. Complete with perfect alabaster sand beaches and turquoise waters, Playa del Carmen is now one of the top destinations in Mexico for high-end, luxury tourism.

Offering 5-star, all-inclusive resorts from the world’s largest companies, including Hyatt and RUI, Playa del Carmen is also very popular for million-dollar, private condominiums boasting private beach clubs and ocean views stretching to the island of Cozumel. Established in 2005, BRIC Vacation Rentals has become the most reputable Vacation Rental company in this flourishing Mexican Caribbean city, presenting 200 diverse and fully serviced Playa del Carmen vacation properties.

Running parallel to the pristine Caribbean waters is the renowned Quinta Avenida, or 5th Avenue. This lively cobblestone street now expands for almost 5 miles, one block from the coast, and offers hundreds of restaurants, nightclubs, and endless shopping. Although one can still find plenty of local cuisine and small artisan shops peddling everything from hammocks to sombreros, Playa del Carmen is transforming rapidly into a high-end, luxury destination. This award-winning resort town greets visitors with its top-notch, exotic restaurants run by notable chefs and upscale boutique stores showcasing an array of designers from around Mexico and the globe.

Playa del Carmen’s glorious white sands and clear, turquoise waters attract millions of beachgoers and water enthusiasts from divers, snorkelers, paddle boarders, and avid fishermen. Perched along the shores in the city’s vibrant center, are several beach clubs offering full food and drink services throughout the day. Whether you would like to be a part of the high-energy, fashion-forward crowds at Mamitas or Kool Beach, or a more relaxed setting such as at Zenzi or Lido, BRIC Vacation Rentals offers private condo rentals just steps from these heavenly Caribbean cantinas.

If you prefer to spend the day soaking up the sun at more rustic and less populated beach locations, you can walk either North or South of town to find quiet, pristine beaches. Just a short drive from Playa del Carmen, there are dozens of extraordinary spots to enjoy a day of fun in the sand and surf such as Maroma Beach, Xpu Ha, Tulum, and Punta Venado to name a few.
