One of the appealing points about Playa del Carmen is that there are many people from North America, Europe and many other parts of the world coming and going all the time. Yet, there comes a time in the late winter/early spring when you’re just waiting for the crowds to disappear for a while so you can enjoy a quiet beach.
Yet, the good news is that in a few places, you can enjoy this even during the busiest tourist season in the winter. One such beach that offers quieter, relaxed enjoyment of the sunshine away from the crowds is Xcalacoco Beach, just 10 minutes out of town, to the north.
Take a look at these pictures:
By the way, you might be interested to know about El Cielo Residencial, a beautiful gated community which we’ve written about before. It is a very short bike ride away from this wonderful beach!
