No, there's no discos here like the Hotel Zone of Cancun. There is a Senior Frog's. but no Bull Dog or CocoBongo or Dady Rock. No problem. With all the money you will save you can go to all these places in your rented car from CancunSteve.
The hotel is next to the main church of Playa del Carmen. Within bocks are supermarkets, banks, currency exchanges, the bus terminal.

Recently a CoCo Bongo has opened here. With acrobatics. Shows. Rock and disco music.

The boutique has T Shirts. Coffee mugs. All saying CoCo Bongo and made in China in small print.
And would you believe steel ashtrays for those who still smoke. Caps. Water bottles in different colors all with colorful logos on them.
Not far from the hotel Campanario.

Also new is the Palazzo Disco also near your cheap hotel in Playa del Carmen.

Pancho: Ze Blue Lobster jus down ze block. Goot lobster. Other guest here always go there. She has old timer's disease (Pancho means Alzheimer's disease) .
Guest: Thanks Pancho. You're so cute and funny!
Pancho: Have a nice dinner!

For upscale romantic dinners near the Hotel Campanario consider Luna Blue.

Or Kalaka on Calle 4. An intimate little out of the way place with wonderful food and a traquil, romantic ambiance.

OR Wicky's on the beach at Calle 10. Large restaurant with great, although pricey menu.The restaurant has terrific views, and a deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the lights of Cozumel island.

Down on the beach near the economic hotel Campanario with free WiFi was this elderly Mayan guy trying to catch the attention of this girl with braided hair and when she snubed the old geizer he gave her the old Mayan sign which is the thumb on the nose and the five fingers moving up and down.

Right near this cheap hotel with kitchenettes there are so many cool sights on the beach. Lovely parasails in the clear skies.
Good people just strolling along the water's edge by the shore with their feet kissed by the gentle surf.

Do snorkel as below the transparent waters are schools of tropical fish and coral too.

If you get up early the sunrise over the water is awesome.
At night the moon reflecting on the waters is picture-postcard perfect.

Just yesterday a guest from the Campanario wrote Dear Somebody, we love it hear in our lovely Playa del Carmen lodgings right in the center of town and near this great beach with funny old geizers and sexy chics.

You've now been in Campanario a week now and have fallen in love with the lodgings, the beaches, Playa del Carmen, and the people. So now you want to purchase property down here.
Cool. But don't be a fool.
A word to the wise is sufficient.
For example, an ejido land deal causes problems for those who don't understand it.
The majority of Mexico's population is Native American or indigenous like that old Mayan guy above.
They were not killed or herded off to reservations like in the States.
During the Mexican Revolution, the government took land away from large haciendas that had acquired it illegally and placed it in trust to the indigenous inhabitants who had lost it.
This land is technically owned by the Mexican Government but used by local indigenous communities.
In recent years, laws have been enacted that allow the heirs of the original families to whom the land was entrusted to privatize and sell it, but the process can take years as each interested party is tracked down for their signature and this is Mexico (siesta, fiesta, mañana).
If you deal directly with a member of an ejido, he or she has the right to take a down payment in return for a promesa, or agreement to sell you his share after it is privatized.
He or she will undoubtedly offer you a great price.
You may be tempted. But it is a highly speculative deal because the ejido may never be privatized, at least not in your lifetime (especially if you're old like that Mayan elderly man).
I suggest you do not even consider this kind of deal. But if the Mexican citizen in question has lived through the division of the ejido and has a clear title, then do it.
Be safe continuing renting Playa del Carmen lodgings with us. No hassles.
Travel tips from the good guys at CancunSteve:
Chances are you're flying down to the Campanario for your Playa del Carmen lodgings.
When you’re booking flights, be sure to clear your cookies or go incognito if you’re using Google Chrome. Important.
Travel sites will often track your visits and can raise the prices on you just because you’ve visited their site before.
That sucks!
Not everyone out there does business like us.
You will have a deal on your Playa del Carmen lodgings here in Campanario with kitchenettes.

Tuesday afternoons are when airlines post the best deals on flights. Who knows why, but it’s a real thing. Take this hack, go forth, and book cheap flights, on Tuesday.
Maybe some releation to that Rolling Stones song Ruby Tuesday?
Our prices LOW every day.

Sometimes it's cheaper to book two one-way flights as opposed to one round trip. Not logical but that's the world of airlines.

Because early flights aren’t as popular, they tend to be a little cheaper. It's a drag to get up at 4AM but you save lots of bread.

Like booking Playa del Carmen lodgings with us.

To save space packing put your socks into the shoes.
On the trip to Campanario when in the bar put ice in the booze.

Use a Binder Clip For Your Headphones keep them untangled.

scan your passport, driver’s license, and any other ID you’re carrying with you on your trip. In case you lose it you’ll have a record of it.

In the unlikely event you misplace your voucher to the Campanario, just give us a call, we'll fix everything up.

Ask for a fragile tag when you check your bag in the airport. This guarantees it’ll be handled nicely, and since fragile bags go on top of the heap, they’re often the first ones out on the baggage carousel.

Avoid paying seven dollars for a bottle of water at the airport by bringing your own empty bottle.
You can’t bring a full bottle through security — they’ll confiscate it — but you can bring an empty bottle and fill it up at a water fountain.
Don't pay MORE for your holiday with someone else. We do it best for your Playa del Carmen vacation.

An elderly gentleman staying at the best Playa del Carmen lodgings, Campanario, was telling his friend about a new restaurant he and his wife recently visited nearby the Campanario Playa del Carmen.
“Both the food and service were excelent!” he said.
His friend asked, “What’s the name of the restaurant?”
“Gee, I don’t remember,” he said, “What do you call the red flower people give on special occasions?”
“You mean a rose?” asked his friend.
“That’s it!” he exclaimed and turning to his wife, asked, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to the other day?”
