Las Palapas is a unique resort in Playa del Carmen - almost 75% of our land is untouched and remains in its natural vegetation state. Yet we are only steps from the beach and the vibrance of 5th Avenue, or as we call it, Avenida Quinta. We constantly see many birds, iguanas and the coati on our grounds. We have been lucky in some years to have turtle nests.

Mexico's rich and very mysterious history is visible at the amazing ruins that are throughout the Yucatan, and all within traveling distance from Playa del Carmen and Las Palapas. Deep in our Yucatan jungles lie the remains of the ancient past of the Mayan civilization. Our ruins are our history, and deeply inspiring.
There is so much more than beach in the Riviera Maya! Explore our cenotes, underground rivers, unique diving and snorkeling sites, and our eco parks, such as Xcaret and Xel-Ha are amazing.
