Officially, records show that Playa del Carmen, Mexico was established in 1937. However, people have lived in the area long before the 20th century rolled in. One of the first groups of people to inhabit the area was the Mayans; many years ago, the Mayans lived in a city called Xaman-Ha, the “Waters of the North.” Xaman-Ha remained a key Mayan religious center and trading post until the 1500s, when Spanish Colonists first set foot in the area. The Spaniards brought disease, death, and Catholicism with them. Before long, Xaman-Ha was no more. In its place stood Playa del Carmen, a city that became a Mexican territory in the early 1900s.
These days, the city embraces its Mexican, Mayan, and Spanish ancestry. People are encouraged to visit Mayan Ruins, eat authentic Mexican cuisine, and learn the various languages and dialects spoken in the area. Visitors are also encouraged to enjoy Playa del Carmen’s beautiful beaches and breezy weather.
As of 2010, about 149,923 people live in Playa del Carmen as full-time residents. The city is large enough to easily accommodate that population size. However, about 1.1 million tourists visit Playa del Carmen, Mexico each year. 98 percent (or 1.08 million) of Playa del Carmen’s tourists come from other countries. All of this is to say that bag storage options may be limited in the city. Bounce, however, is always available; we’re a luggage service that operates 7 days a week in popular tourist hubs and beyond. To learn more about our services, download the Bounce app.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
