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 (Casa Cenote, Gran Cenote, &more). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Xcaret, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, and make a trip to Quinta Avenida.
