Playa del Carmen is a paradisiac place in the heart of Rivera Maya, where you will find a lot of activities to have a good time: visit the Maya ruins or rest in one of the amazing beaches that surround us. If you like to go shopping, you can do your favorite activity in the exclusive Fifth Avenue.
Theme parks are a great option if you want to enjoy nature and adventure activities. You can not leave without visiting some of the wonderful parks in the area, such as Xcaret, where you can see a wide variety of animals such as flamingos, butterflies, manatees, spider monkeys and jaguars; Xel-Ha, one of the natural wonders of Mexico where marine and freshwater species coexist; or the Sian Ka'an Reserve, a protected natural area declared World Heritage by Unesco in 1987, which stands out for the petenes, masses of trees that can measure up to 30 meters in height.
Our beaches are spectacular places where you can relax and forget about your worries. We recommend you visit the island of Cozumel, the second largest reef in the world known for its natural beauty, where you can practice diving. You should not miss Playa Paraíso (Tulum), Playa Mamitas and Playa Maroma, where you can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets.
Maya culture impregnates all the corners of Playa del Carmen. That is why you can not miss the visit to Xcaret, Xaman-Há o Tulum, important archeological sites where you will discover every detail of the history.
