Don't bother shaking the sand out of your suitcase when you're in Playa del Carmen, we're sure you'll want to stay awhile. Affectionately known as Playa, the Tribe has crowned this chill city as a favorite home base thanks to its beach-side access, lively cafe & coworking culture, and year round remote worker scene. Living in Playa del Carmen as a community only adds to the experience, where the bonds run deep and the friendships last long after we've left the Playa.
Experience Playa del Carmen
with the Tribe
Take on Playa del Carmen with the Tribe and discover a new side to this beach town. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
Meet your next cofounder or coworker
"I met someone who really helped me out in a work situation. I was able to hire her and hope to keep working together in the future. So thankful to the Tribe for bringing me together with so many talented and interesting people!"
Find gratitude & forever friendships together
"David putting together our last hurrah at the cenote was an unexpected surprise, everyone had a wonderful time. It was very meaningful to sit in a circle and share our gratitude for each other and for the experiences we'd created together."
Swap stories & go deeper with the crew
"Sharing stories on the dock of our Bacalar villa as the sun set behind us"
Group hangouts are always on the agenda
"There were too many to mention, but even simple hangouts on the beach playing volleyball were highlights"
Team up for a day of beach games
"We had this amazing day playing volleyball, making up our own games and generally hanging out on the beach during a weekend trip to Isla Mujeres."
Celebrate life's big moments in a new way
"Many memorable moments, but seeing everyone come together in the first few days for one member's birthday really helped set the tone for the rest of the Chapter."
Our Home in Playa del Carmen
We're located in a prime spot, on a quiet street that's a 10 minute walk to the beach and 3 minutes to countless cafes and restaurants.
Every apartment has a private terrace, a fully-stocked kitchen, large bedrooms, and a spacious living room area to get together with your roommates.
Each booking includes a weekly cleaning plus towel and linen changes. There's also a workout room on site for basic exercise or a fully-equipped gym a 10 minute walk away.
Good to Know
We purposely rented the penthouse apartment with a furnished terrace to act as a main communal space. This apartment will likely be a main Tribe gathering point.
The pool and hot tub are available to use, but remember that the building doesn't allow food, drinks, or loud music in that area.
