Playa del Carmen

In case you haven’t heard, Playa del Carmen is said to be one of the fastest growing cities in Latin America — there are literally new hotels, condos, restaurants and cafes popping up on just about every corner from Playacar to the beginning of Colosio and from the edge of the Caribbean sea westward to the Carretera (Federal Highway).

One of the many problems that goes hand in hand with the rapid growth of any city (not only Playa del Carmen) is finding quality accommodations at reasonable prices and this is one of the reasons why I decided to create this guide.

My curated list of recommended airbnbs and vacation rentals in Playa del Carmen below should suit just about all of your wants and needs for your upcoming vacation.

Should you find that you have more questions in regards to Playa del Carmen or more specifically Playa del Carmen airbnbs, please be sure to leave a comment below and I’ll respond to you as soon as possible.

Anah Suites Penthouse Loft Airbnb Playa del Carmen

Luxury Penthouse Loft

This beautiful penthouse loft is the featured property on this list and for a few good reasons.

Firstly, it’s owned by a good friend of mine (James) who happens to own a few condos here in Playa del Carmen and if there’s anyone I trust to make sure you have a comfortable stay in Playa, James is the guy.

I’m featuring this specific penthouse loft of his as it’s the nicest and most unique penthouse that I’ve stepped foot in here in Playa del Carmen.

From the layout of the apartment to the location, price and the amenities offered at Anah Suites, this place really can’t be beat.

Note: If you decide to book with James please mention that you found his apartment here on Pause The Moment!
