Playa del Carmen

The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
Get out of town with these interesting Playa del Carmen side-trips: Cancun (Swim with Dolphins & Coppel Plaza Las Americas), Akumal Beach (in Akumal) and Tulum (Ruinas Mayas de Tulum, Plastic Flamingo, & more). Pack the 18th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Xel-Ha. Spend the 19th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: laugh and play at Xcaret Eco Theme Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, stop by Diamonds International Playa del Carmen, and get in on the family fun at Xplor Park.
