Party central! 12ths street going form the beach to 10th Avenue is where all the action is.
Playa Del Carmen is know for the bright sunny beaches but it also is a very different place at night. Some would say it comes alive others would see it at rest. Restaurants and shop close up and then the bars and clubs take over. Most of the action gravitates to 12th Street especially from 10th Avenue to the beach. This is where most of the nightclubs are. Here is a gallery of some photos of Playa in the late night hours. It Is a little harder to get photos at night so I hope you can look past the lesser quality photos. Like all out galleries we will continue to post photos here so come back often to check it out.
