Playa del Carmen with a 7 year old

Jump to last reply

I'm really struggling trying to plan a trip to Mexico in February with my wife and 7 year old daughter. We are assuming Playa Del Carmen, but are opened to suggestions. We think we need a hotel/resort with evening entertainment for my daughter. Does that necessarily mean all-inclusive? Personally, I don't think I like all-inclusives, for a variety of reasons, but again feel free to correct my misapprehensions. First, we are adventurous, excited eaters. We like to go in search of great, local, interesting food, not dumbed-down mass-appeal dining (I doubt we'd eat many dinners at the resort). Second, I think of all-inclusives as huge, and we want don't want to walk half a mile from our room to the beach. And finally, I find that service is best when people are rewarded (tipped) for their effort.

So ... any recommendations for a Playa del Carmen resort that is not all-inclusive but that offers entertainment for a child? ... any recommendations for an all-inclusive that doesn't fall short in the ways listed above? ... any thought processes I'm overlooking?

I appreciate any help.
