Playa del Carmen, Mexico: areal view!

Playa del Carmen, Mexico is the perfect home base for travel to anywhere on the coast.  Ferries run from downtown to Cozumel all day, and it is only an hour to Cancun by bus or car (busses run continually).  10 years ago the town was just a fishing village, with the ferry pier for Cozumel and a good bus station to bring people to the ferry.  The bus stations are still very active - with buses running to all parts of Mexico!
