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: Ek Balam (in Ek Balam Village), Tulum (Art Gallery Miniature, Tulum Archaeological Site, &more) and Chichen Itza (in Chichen Itza). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Xcaret, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, make a trip to Quinta Avenida, and cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience.
