(pronounced "shkar-et"). Climate In October 2005 Hurricane Wilma passed directly over Playa del Carmen, remaining in the vicinity for two days and causing significant damage and a temporary drop in tourist arrivals. Fortunately most of the damage was relatively superficial and repaired within a few weeks of the storm. Hurricane Wilma arrived from the Caribbean Sea, passing over Cozumel before making landfall in Playa del Carmen. It then moved north along the Mexican coast, hitting Cancún especially hard. Demographics There is a significant Canadian, European and Argentinian influence in Playa, with a number of local business proprietors drawn from the American, South American and European expatriate community. In addition, a significant amount of Playa's tourists include thousands of backpackers from around the world, who pass through Playa while touring Mexico and the surrounding region. There are currently three foreign consulates in Playa del Carmen representing the United States of America, Canada and Italy. Tourism thumb left Tourists entering Playa del Carmen's ferry terminal (Image:Terminal Maritima Playa del Carmen.JPG) thumb left Playa del Carmen central beach 2010 (Image:Playa del Carmen beach.JPG) Originally a small fishing town, tourism to Playa del Carmen began with the passenger ferry service to Cozumel, an island across the Cozumel Channel and a world famous scuba diving destination. Playa del Carmen has recently undergone rapid development with new luxury residential condominium buildings, restaurants, boutiques and entertainment venues. There are plans to develop six luxury boutique hotels, American chain restaurants, including Hard Rock Cafe, as well as a small upmarket shopping plaza offering designer boutiques, a cinema, luxury condominiums, and the first international House of Blues entertainment venue. Quinta Avenida is slated to become a cultural and economic stronghold for the Yucatan peninsula with the development of civic venues and up-market retail.

A pedestrian walkway located just one or two blocks inland from the beach, Fifth Avenue is lined with hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants.

Playacar is a residential and tourist development in Playa del Carmen just south of the main urban area. Most of the all-inclusive hotels, the aviary and the golf course are located in this development. There are two phases -- phase 1 is mostly residential with a few hotels and some stores, while phase 2 contains the largest all-inclusive resorts as well as the golf course and a significant number of residential properties. Playacar was developed starting in 1979 by Mr. Fernando Barbachano's company, Compania Impulsora Turistica de Playa del Carmen, S.A. The development was later sold to Aircoa, an American corporation, which later sold the development to SIDEK of the Martinez Huitron family and more recently sold to Mr. Ernesto Echeverria. Urban planning The Playa del Carmen local community and government have attempted to retain Playa del Carmen's reputation and charm as a small fishing village and artists' colony, without it becoming as large and metropolitan as Cancún. The city passed an ordinance limiting buildings to five stories. Playa del Carmen is currently expanding north beyond the Colosio section and on the other side of highway 307, the Ejido. thumbnail right View from the ferry dock (File:Playadelcarmenbeach.jpg) Playa del Carmen city planners have begun making the town more pedestrian friendly.
