While in recent years Santa Teresa has become a bustling surf town, Mal Pais has retained its laid-back vibe and beckons travelers in search of nature and tranquility. Playa Carmen is one of the most popular beaches of the area with easy going surf and nice beach restaurants. In Playa Carmen is the main commercial center of the beach communities where you find banks, the pharmacy and car rentals.
