Paradise Found: Vacation Rentals In The Heart Of Playa del Carmen For Less Than $100 USD A Night
The Riviera Maya, along Mexico’s white-sand Caribbean coastline, has been a highly favored travel destination for decades. Visitors love its silky beaches, adventure parks, and rich history. Those who are fortunate to call this Caribbean oasis home stay for the low cost of living. Not to mention the beach life is the best life!
At its soul sits Playa del Carmen, a vibrant and forever-evolving seaside paradise. Not only does this Riviera Maya gem offer superb restaurants, festivals, and nightlife, but also a wealth of year-round water activities. Moreover, its central location provides easy access to the bounty of nearby exotic islands, cenotes, and Mayan ruins.
For this reason, hundreds of thousands of sunseekers choose Playa del Carmen as a home base when planning a Mexico beach vacation. While Bric Vacation Rentals does present a vast catalog of luxury, beach-front vacation homes, this list is for those who prefer to travel on a budget. However, just because they sit in the budget-friendly category, doesn’t mean these homes lack amenities. These top 6 Playa del Carmen condo rentals offer comfortable, modern luxuries without the exorbitant rates.
Beyond the $75.00 per night rate through the fall, you’ll love the contemporary and stylish vibe of this like-new property. So what exactly do you get for $75.00 a night? The 1-bedroom condo features a fully-appointed kitchenette with a mini-fridge and two-burner stovetop. In the gorgeous bedroom, you’ll rest well on a queen bed. But if you happen to be accompanied by some pint-size travelers, there’s also a pull-out sofa bed in the main living area.
When we said there’s no lack of amenities, we meant it! On the posh communal roof terrace is the infinity pool. Perched over the city and facing the Caribbean Sea, its clear blue waters invite you to cool yourself. There’s plenty of shade in the multiple lounge areas when you need a break from the midday sun.
Nearby (5 minutes by foot) the white sand unleashes its irresistible call, tempting you to a day of fun in the sun and surf. With a dozen beach clubs to choose from along wide stretches of beach, tropical bliss is inevitable. In addition, it’s hard not to be enticed by Playa del Carmen’s popular dining and shopping district. Follow the intoxicating aromas and you’ll come upon excellent eateries and a drove of quaint clothing and souvenir stores.
PLAYA KAAN 30
