Playacar is the jewel of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. Just south of Playa del Carmen on the Yucatan peninsula, it’s an exclusive gated community of luxurious hotels and trendy condo complexes. The place comes with its very own 18-hole championship golf course. Plus you’ve got cotton-white beaches, top dive spots and a stylish shopping mall right on your doorstep.
Surrounded by tropical greenery, the Riu Tequila has a secluded setting and lots of pools and restaurants.
This place is on a relaxed part of the Caribbean Coast. It’s five minutes’ walk down to the platinum-shine beach – or there are golf buggies to whisk you down there in half the time. And, when you want a change of scene, colourful Playa del Carmen’s a five-minute drive away.
You’ll find a quartet of pools here, including an adults-only option with a swim-up bar, plus a children’s pool with waterslides. Five restaurants have dining covered and you can get snacks 24 hours a day. The Riu Yucatan and the Riu Playacar are just next door – you can use some of their facilities, too.
