In Playa del Carmen, the hot spot of Mexico, on the Yucatan peninsula, you will find the Hotel Basico. This is one of several uniquely designed hotels in Mexico by Omelette. Hotel Basico has the feel of a tropical getaway mixed with an industrial tanker, but don't let that fool you. It lack for none of the comforts or activities that today's hip crowd are looking for in a vacation. Best of all, the price. Rooms start at $168 US.
