Where, where, where ?

Am from Minnesota. Where can I go that is similar to Playa Del Carmen, the way it was before it became so big and expensive? Have been to Puerto Vallarta (Old Town), Cozumel, and Isla Mujeres. Would like to be in a small town with local market, family run places to eat, lots of local shops, good prices. Don't want to be stuck in a large luxury resort way out of town.

Thank you very much.

exactly what we were thinking....we love Playa but it's a bit busy now. Have you tried Huatulco? Beautiful area and beaches, great people and lots of restaurant choices in town. Also look into Rincon de Quayabitos. We're looking for something new also this year, happy searching.

Puerto Escondido is a genuine Mexican destination with beautiful beaches and a nice community and mellow "night life". It's on the Pacific so it isn't the tranquil clear Caribbean but there's great deep see fishing, surfing and 2 beaches that have gentle waves so they are swimable with a little snorkeling.
