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: Cancun (La Isla Shopping Village & Swim with Dolphins), Tulum (Ruins of Tulum, Playa Paraiso, & more) and Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 28th (Sat) at Xel-Ha. There's lots more to do: cool off at Xcaret Park, make a trip to Quinta Avenida, and enjoy the sand and surf at Akumal Beach.
