The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado and 3D Museum of Wonders are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to Cenote Santa Cruz and La Playa Xpuha. Venture out of the city with trips to Tulum (Gran Cenote, Climbing Tours, & more), Cozumel (The Amazing Cozumel Race, Palancar Reef, & more) and Cancun (Catedral de la Santisima Trinidad, Shark Diving, & more). The adventure continues: Head underground at Cenote Chaak Tun, enjoy the sand and surf at Riviera Maya, identify plant and animal life at Cenote Chikin Ha, and pause for some serene contemplation at Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church.
