The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Playa del Carmen: Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Tulum (Tulum Archaeological Site, Spas, & more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 23rd (Tue) at Xel-Ha. There's more to do: make a splash at Xcaret Park and make a trip to Quinta Avenida.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are Cozumel International Airport and Cancún International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
