was just there in November, much prefer it to cancun! we went all inclusive, but i've been there before on cruise ships, and it's relatively cheap for eating out etc. it's mainly bars, it does tend to get a little quieter when the ships leave for the evening, as most of the hotels are a bit further away from the town. there's a huge variety of bars and restaurants on the main street which is called 5th AVE! most of them do offers on buckets of beer/cocktails etc. look out for the Argentinian restaurant, it's on a corner, a tiny long narrow place, but has gorgeous food. there's loads of touristy shops on the street aswell, and places offering tours to the Mayan ruins and Chichen Itza, X-caret etc. the beach is fab too, as far as i remember there's places on the left on the pier where the Cozumel ferry docks where you can rent sunbeds for about $5 for the day, there's bars and restaurants all along the beach too. weather was fab when we were there, it rained 1 day out of 10, so we just heading into town and went shopping. there's a massive Wal-mart a few blocks up, if you went self catering, at least you'd be able to get stuff there, they literally have everything!!

Hi Dymo, were going to playa del carmen on oour honeymoon! We are going all inclusive, 10 nights in a 5 star and flights for 2500 , we said all inclusive would be better becuase we wouldn worry about spending money! Will be interested in hearing from someone else who has been too.... we decided not to go to cancun as wanted somewhere less touristy :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll

have been in sept. glorious weather. all inclusive is such better value if you like to drink (a lot) of alcohol on should weigh it up.

we do like to drink a good bit.But for us it does not work as we prefer to move out and about tired it in Cuba and DR and we ended up paying all insluive and used it for brekfast and maybe 3 dinners out of the 10 days.
