Playa del Carmen
Often labeled as one of the best spots in the world for remote workers, Playa del Carmen offers a comfortable Caribbean-style, white sand beach paradise at affordable prices. While parts of the town are quite touristy, it's also easy to get away from the crowds and whatever your interests, you'll find it here. Diverse and cosmopolitan, you can eat at a local taco stall one minute and be at a posh rooftop nightclub the next, with so many cafes, bars, shops, yoga studios, fresh juice stands and beaches to fill up your time. The surrounding area provides a great deal of excursion options, with towns such as Tulum and Valladolid to explore, as well as gorgeous cenotes, islands, coral reefs and Mayan ruins.
