    Playa del Carmen, Mexico is a lovely, picturesque Mayan fishing village located in the center of Mexico’s Cancun-Tulum corridor in the state of Quintana Roo. “Playa” as locals call it is located in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean coast along the Mayan Riviera.

    This small city is approximately 40 minutes from the international airport in Cancun, and only 40 minutes by ferry to Cozumel. The host families in Playa del Carmen have played a major part in providing a quality family program by providing a comfortable welcoming home. They also provide a great means for helping family members practice their Spanish and learn about Mexican Culture and food. We also can arrange hotel or private apartment options for those families that want a more independent living arrangement.

    Playa del Carmen is known throughout the world for its numerous attractions which include: snorkeling, diving, wind surfing, fishing, golf, and horseback riding. The beaches themselves are spectacular. Nowhere else will you find beaches so white, and sand so soft. For snorkeling and diving, your family has come to the right place. The water is crystal clear, and the area is home to numerous reefs, all of which are teeming with an abundance of life.

    For those interested in the Maya Civilization, there is no better place for your family to be. Within just a few hours of Playa del Carmen are the impressive ruins of Chichen Itza, Coba, and of course Tulum. There are numerous tours plus excellent bus services from Playa del Carmen. Playa Del Carmen is a great option for families that want both a beach location and a jumping point to nearby cultural hubs of the Yucatan.
