The Riu Playacar is a charming and colourful Caribbean style resort, located opposite a lovely white sandy beach surrounded by lush tropical gardens, just 15 minutes from the heart of Playa del Carmen.

I am waiting for 4 weeks to pass so I can be in this tropical paradise. This will be my 4th or 5th trip to Riu PlayaCar. I was there in 2004 and 2005 before Hurricane Rita. Then I heard the beach had had a terrible erosion problem so we didn't want to be disappointed. Last March, we were there during the start of spring break, it was as lovely as ever. PlayaCar is the smallest of the Riu properties in town. The food is good, service is good, and friendly. They have added and Asian restaurant. The beach is beautiful white sand. It is possible to walk the beach from the hotel to town. Town is 10 minutes from the hotel. The town is busy and a nice change of pace.
