The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Escape the urban bustle at Akumal Beach and Playa Paraiso. Get some historical perspective at Ruinas Mayas de Tulum and Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá. Change things up with these side-trips from Playa del Carmen: Cancun (Swim with Dolphins, La Isla Shopping Village, & more), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Cozumel) and Grand Cenote (in Tulum). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 3rd (Tue) at Xel-Ha. The adventure continues: make a splash at Xcaret Eco Theme Park, get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, and make a trip to Quinta Avenida.
