The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Change things up with these side-trips from Playa del Carmen: Tulum (Gran Cenote & Tulum Archaeological Site). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 21st (Sun) at Xel-Ha. There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Xcaret Park, make a trip to Quinta Avenida, and let your taste buds guide you at Yummy Eats Free Foodie Walking Tour.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Cozumel International Airport and Cancún International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in July, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
