This Church in this location has Sunday masses usually in Spanish and is downtown Playa del Carmen. However, many reviews here at this site are actually talking about the smaller chapel right on 5th Av. (Quinta Avenida) which is very close to the ferry pier, and has a beautiful view of the Gulf right through the windows behind the altar.... More

We wanted to see some of the churches while we were in Mexico. This one, like most of them, was really pretty.

Loved this church. Such a peaceful and beautiful building with simple lines. The green plant growing around the window with a vista of the beach/sea also gave a cool calmness to the interior. Equally, the outside has smooth lines and with the white paint looks awesome. Worth a visit.

This is a place that has to be visited if you come to Playa del Carmen. Just appreciate the contrast of a "capilla" with the sound of the surroundings. I think it's really nice

Small, beautiful church in the heart of hectic Quinta Avenida. Nice place to stop for a while, cool off and meditate.

This small church is located on 5th Avenue. My sisters and I whenever we go to Playa del Carmen we visit this church because it feels a great inner peace when we are there. Beautiful place. To enter you find a small bridge and when you open the door you find that the end is a glass wall and you... More
