The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church and Tulum Archaeological Site. Take a break from the city and head to La Playa Xpuha and National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos. Change things up with these side-trips from Playa del Carmen: Xpu-ha Beach (in Puerto Aventuras), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Cancun (Dolphin & Whale Watching & La Isla Shopping Village). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Ecopark Kantun Chi, find something for the whole family at Xcaret Park, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at La 5ta Hacienda, and admire the masterpieces at Gaston Charo Art Gallery Playa del Carmen.
