Playa del Carmen

The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
We've included these beaches for you: La Playa Xpuha and Xpu-ha Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Zona Arqueologica de Muyil and Palancar Reef. Change things up with these side-trips from Playa del Carmen: Tulum (Gran Cenote, MiNiAtUrE art Gallery, & more), Akumal (Aktun Chen, Galeria Lamanai, & more) and Cozumel (Fishing Charters & Tours & The Money Bar Beach Club). Spend the 14th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Mayan Museum of Cancun, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, play a few rounds at Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church.

For reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Playa del Carmen sightseeing tool .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
