I've never done so and would be a bit wary, but I've definitely considered it. In every instance the host never replied to me so I moved on, and in a few cases airbnb even notified me that the listing was fake.

So you should proceed with caution, but as has been pointed out, hosts have to start somewhere to get that first review. See if the photos have been verified by airbnb (not sure if they have that in playa del carmen)

I'd skip, definitely, unless that was the only listing with a reasonable price in the area I was looking in and other non-airbnb options were too expensive.
