The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
You'll get in some beach time at Paradise Beach and Akumal Beach. Visiting Xel-Ha and Gran Cenote will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Playa del Carmen: Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba), Cancun (Playa Delfines, La Isla Shopping Village, & more) and Tulum (Spas, Cenote Tak Be Ha, & more). There's more to do: find something for the whole family at Xcaret Park and make a trip to Quinta Avenida.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Playa del Carmen road trip website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cozumel International Airport and Cancún International Airport. In April in Playa del Carmen, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 70°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
