The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Explore Playa del Carmen's surroundings by going to Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Tulum (Kaahal Home Tulum, Tulum Archaeological Site, & more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 23rd (Tue) at Xel-Ha. And it doesn't end there: make a splash at Xcaret Park, get a new perspective on things with Fishing with Roberto Navarro, and don't miss a visit to Quinta Avenida.

For traveler tips, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Playa del Carmen trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, 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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
