The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Bring the kids along to Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve and Akumal Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Kayaking & Canoeing and Zipline. Explore Playa del Carmen's surroundings by going to Akumal (Yal-ku Lagoon & Aktun Chen), Ek Balam Mayan Ruins (in Ek Balam Village), Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos - Puerto Morelos Reef (in Puerto Morelos), Cancun (La Isla Shopping Mall & Museo Maya de Cancun), Casa de los Venados (in Valladolid), Tulum (Grand Cenote, Tulum Bazaar, & more) and Cozumel (Scuba & Snorkeling, Spas & Wellness, & more). Pack the 20th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Xel-Ha. Spend a fascinating day underwater on the 29th (Mon) with a shark diving experience. The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Xcaret Eco Theme Park, shop like a local with Gaston Charo, look for gifts at Fernando Rodriguez, and enjoy the sand and surf at Parque Los Fundadores.
