Officially, records show that Playa del Carmen was established in 1937. However, people have lived in the area long before the 18th century rolled in. One of the first groups of people to inhabit the area were 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, Playa del Carmen is a city that embraces its Mexican, Mayan, and Spanish ancestry. People are encouraged to visit carefully curated 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. After all, Playa del Carmen means “Carmen Beach” in English.
On an average day, Playa del Carmen isn’t a very populated city. As of 2010, about 149,923 people live in the city as full-time residents. The city is large enough to easily accommodate that population size. However, things get interesting during tourist season; about 1.1 million tourists visit Playa del Carmen 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 luggage 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.
