The coast of Quintana Roo where Playa del Carmen is situated is on the Carribbean Sea. The climate is tropical and rainy periods in September with rainfalls that last an hour in the afternoon then stop. Some history: during the 16th and 17th century the population on the coast of Quintana Roo including Playa del Carmen suffered numerous attacks from pirates who found refruge in the Carribbean islands.
Today the only attack in Quintanna Roo is from the sleazy time-share man who is more rampant in Cancun than in laid-back Playa del Carmen. Here in this laid-back paradise you'll find 'attacks' from girls offering braids (tranzes) all along 5th Avenue of today's Playa del Carmen.
