The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Paradise Beach and Akumal Beach. Explore Playa del Carmen's surroundings by going to Tulum (Tulum Archaeological Site, MexicArte, & more). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Xcaret, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Playa del Carmen day trip planner.
