Iberostar Quetzal is an impressive all-inclusive resort located on Playacar's magnificent beach, just minutes away from Playa del Carmen. "Playa", that's how the locals call it, is an old fishermen's village that has transformed today to 'the' vacation destination in the Caribbean. From its fun-filled water activities like snorkeling and sailing to its vibrant nightlife full of bars, Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue), it truly is the hottest spot in sunny Mexico. And very centrally located - close to Cozumel, Tulum, Puerto Morelos, and even Cancun's International Airport is just 45 mins. away.

Please note that due to environmental factors and natural erosion beach size is susceptible to constant change and may vary seasonally.
