Beautiful small Roman Catholic Church... My family and I went for a Sunday mass- of course service was in Spanish, but who cares...beautiful... There are only few rows of seats but there is place to stand... Priest very friendly and welcomes everybody with open arm... Stop by if need to pray and reflect!

Its hard to miss this little white church while in Playa del Carmen as it certainly stands out amongst all the bars and shops.

The church itself is small and quaint, very reverent and peaceful feeling upon stepping inside.... More

What a lovely Church in the heart of the city near the beach, shops and the bus station. Easy to pop into for peace and a prayer.

We were aiming for the Capella de Nuestra Senora de Carmen which is at Av. Benito Juarez and Quinta Avenida, but we ended up here instead...the challenges of our first venture out while in Mexico. The church was beautiful, vibrantly decorated inside. We went to 10am mass, which was predominantly in Spanish, altough the first reading was in English. There... More

We do not speak Spanish but we really enjoyed attending Mass at Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church. We were welcomed right away by the Priest and all of the parishioners were very welcoming. There is no A.C. but we didn't care. Dress was casual and many people were wearing a t-shirt and jeans with sandals. Their music ministry was... More
