If you're more of a "champagne taste on a beer budget" kind of person, don't count yourself out yet! Vacation rentals are inherently a better value than hotels because they're spacious and make it possible to travel with friends and family and split the costs. Alternatively, you can enter our "Pin to Win" contest, which runs through Nov 12, 2013, for the chance to stay in Quinta Clara - a 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom luxury villa in Playa del Carmen  - Thanks to Luxury Retreats for the hook-up!
