Background Of Playacar Mexico
Playacar Mexico is a gated community that was started in 1979 and consists of 2 phases. Phase One consists of High end housing which includes some of the most expensive beachfront property in the area. Phase two consists of Phase 2 a large golf course, more houses, condominiums, a bird aviary park, small shopping area and all inclusive resorts. Phase two is the larger part of the playacar development.
Phase one has just one entrance and exit which has a security checkpoint. Phase two has 4 entrances and exits which are also guarded. The main entrance to phase two is off of 10th avenue.
The beach front area in front of both phases is approximately 2.5 miles and has few public access points. If you are not staying in Playacar phase one or two, then you will have to walk down from Playa Del Carmen (north of the development). The phase two side of Playacar has the big hotels and resorts which are mainly all inclusives.
Each resort and hotel has their own security and they own the beach chairs throughout the area. There is no public service here for those that are not staying in the corresponding hotel or resorts.
Playacar has security at the entrances, within the resorts and roaming throughout the entire development. The roads are nice to bike, walk and run and are well maintained throughout the development.
